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


Articulate and bright, the D'Addario XL Pro Steels offer amazing clarity to each note. They are some of the brightest sounding bass strings around!
 
This is a great set of strings for players wanting more bite and top-end to their bass tone. Thunderous metal basslines, heavy rock grooves and blistering jazz bass solos all sound clear as a bell on these super bright strings. Bass chords sound amazing also: with the Pro Steels' 'piano-like' tone, playing chords anywhere on the neck is a dream! 
 
These strings slap too…. the strong high-end presence and tight low-end offer a great slap tone. 
 
These aren't ordinary roundwound strings either: they are what D'Addario call 'textured rounds' and offer a more coarse playing surface than ordinary rounds. This is great for players who like the more tactile feel of uncoated roundwound strings. 
 
These will bring out the best of your six-string! If you order a 6 string bass set, expect your low B string to be full of life and to sound as crystal clear as the other strings. These strings have made me fall in love with my low B again!
 
I have been using D'Addario's for years and the consistency from pack to pack is remarkable. Expect top performance every time!
 
Go for ProSteels if you're looking for a serious amount of zing in your string!

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

 
EPS170-6SL is a light gauge string set for 6-String, super long scale electric bass. XL ProSteel electric bass strings utilize a stainless steel wrap wire, enhancing the strings' interaction with magnetic pickups, producing a distinctively bright and present tone.
 
XL ProSteels are D'Addario's brightest and most magnetic bass strings. They utilize an exclusive corrosion-resistant steel alloy that deliver a super-bright tone without shrill overtones. They offer a palette of harmonically rich, brilliantly penetrating highs combined with pronounced, tight-and-tough lows to create the coveted "Piano tone" steel players crave. Great for both articulate fingering or aggressive picking, ProSteels give you the extra edge and punch you need to cut through the mix.

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.
