    Fabulous Tone!

    Review ~ Enter D'Addario's new 'balanced tension' set of hex core nickel-plated stainless steel EXL170BT roundwounds. The notion of balanced tension is a good one, and D'Addario's execution is one of excellence. String-To-String balance of: volume; tone, and feel is outstanding! Consistancy to the extreme. Winding is uniform and smooth for reduced string screech.

    Tone: Full & Highly Textured. One of the very tightest bottom ends I have ever heard in a roundwound. Large. Big. Huge. Vibrant. Aggressive low-mid growl. Fat meaty mids. Visiously snarling high-mids. Soaring highs that are light and airy with crystalline clarity & high definition.

    Attack: with a pick = WWIII! Great Slappers. Plenty of punchy 'umph when finger plucked.

    Overview: Well made. Plays in quickly. Holds tune well. Good feel. Excellent full range of tone. No annoying unmusical tin can ringy-zingy wangy-twangy clanky-wanky nonsense.
