Long-lasting Bass Strings with Punch and Clarity

D'Addario's NYXL Bass Strings aim to deliver exceptional dynamic range and wide harmonic response. Their recipe is NYXL nickel-plated wrap wire around their NY Steel core. The plated string windings have increased magnetic properties that give you higher output and vibrant midrange tone. Bassists at Sweetwater like these strings because the rich harmonic content makes it easy to shape your bass guitar's tone for virtually any style. They also stay in tune very well. Whether you slap and pop or play laid back R&B grooves, you'll be able to find a great tone with D'Addario NYXL Bass Strings.

D'Addario - Making strings for over 300 years

Behind every set of D'Addario strings are over three centuries of fine craftsmanship. The D'Addario family tradition began in the tiny town of Salle, Italy, in 1680, where they made assorted instrument strings for over two hundred years before relocating to New York in 1905. As the modern string-making industry began to develop, the D'Addario family emerged as innovators by designing the winding machine most string makers still use today. And while their techniques have modernized, the pride that goes into each set of strings dates back to the D'Addario family's earliest roots.

These strings are great! Clarity, punch, low end...all around awesome! I was hesitant to try another brand besides my old tried and true but I'm sure glad I took the chance. (I really liked the featured video on Sweetwater's site from inside the D'Addario factory as well.) But give these strings a try, you'll love them! They last a long time too! Still articulate and not muddy even after being on the bass for a few months! Lindsey Becker is a great rep as well. Sweetwater has a great selection, AWESOME customer service, and you get free candy with your order! Buy these strings, put them on your bass, stretch them out a little, tune up and that's it! You won't be disappointed!

A New Level of Tone

I went to my local music store, looking to buy some Ernie Ball Cobalt strings, and apparently they are not allowed to budge the price on them, and I was not paying $40 for them. So I asked what else they had in stock with a .130 B string. He brought me these and the packaging just looked very high class, very impressed. Got home and threw them on (my Stingray 5 string) and instantly they sounded amazing, they didn't have that over the top brightness like most other strings, a very focused sound that didn't color my tone much. I primarily play metal and more aggressive genres, but first thing I tested was chords above the 12th fret. Very beautiful clean, flawless heavy overdrive, and amazingly nasty distortion.

Bass strings

Great strings , they can take a serious beating and last longer than any other brand i have used . I play industrial metal and use a pick , great tone but the cost is just rediculous for 1 pack of these you can get 5 packs of guitar strings .
