Here’s what we have to say about these strings; 


Clear highs and tight lows: the D'Addario XL Nickel Wound bass guitar string sets produce a bright, but rounded sound that sits fantastically well in just about any situation! A brilliant all-round bass string.

Whether you play rock, metal, funk, pop, soul, disco (I could go on), you will find that the D'Addario nickels pack a huge punch and are great for fingerstyle, pick playing and slap. These strings boast impressive clarity across the entire range of the bass guitar.

The biggest advantage of these nickel-plated strings is that they last a long time without sounding dull. Not only that but the nickel coating protects your frets from premature wear.

D'Addario offer incredible consistency from set to set. Personally, I have been using them for years and never had a bad pack!

If you are looking for a great well-rounded bass string, with the best of everything that roundwound strings have to offer, look no further.

Here’s what D’Addario say about these strings;


XL Nickel Wound, D'Addario's most popular guitar strings, are precision wound with nickel-plated steel onto a carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel core. The result is a set of strings with long-lasting, distinctive, bright tone and excellent intonation - ideal for the widest variety of guitars and musical styles. 

ESXL170-5 strings are constructed with ball ends on both ends of the strings for use on Steinberger long scale electric bass guitars. XL Nickel Wound electric bass strings, long recognized as the industry standard, are ideal for a wide range of musical styles.

D’Addario is the world’s largest strings manufacturer, supplying strings globally for almost any stringed instrument (we’ve got them all!) including electric & acoustic guitar, bass, classical guitar, mandolin, banjo, violin, double bass… the list goes on!

D’Addario-engineered NY Steel is one of the brand’s most recent innovations providing unparalleled strength and longevity spanning across the strings range from Nickel Bronze, NYXL, XS, and even folk instrument strings.

D’Addario NYXL is the heady combination of NY Steel and reformulated nickel-plated steel wrap wire making this the best range of electric guitar strings available.

D’Addario’s original treated strings range for longevity was EXP which has now been superseded by XT. This range of electric, acoustic and classical guitar, bass, banjo, and mandolin strings features a thin, hydrophobic coating protecting every string in the set from corrosion. We stock single strings from this range too!

The latest addition to D’Addario’s X-Series acoustic and electric guitar strings range is the XS. This proprietary coating and treatment on all strings in the set makes them arguably the most advanced guitar strings on the planet. Utilising the strength of NY Steel and reformulated nickel-steel wrap wire (or phosphor bronze for acoustic) which is completely coated means these strings can last longer, play harder, and sound better for longer than any other guitar strings.
