    Simply put, these are the best strings at the lowest price. I’ve been playing electric bass for over 35 years and these are the brand I always come back to. I’ve tried Dr. Bass, Rotosounds, Fender, Markleys, etc. with no noticeable difference or improvement. D’Addarios sound great and last a long time. You can usually find them in multi-packs and/or on sale so it doesn’t hurt to change them more often. This is one example where use don’t get what you pay for, your get more! They come in many different lengths and gauges, so make sure you buy the correct set for your instrument. If you select a different gauge, don’t forget that you may have to make adjustments to the intonation, string height, and/or neck relief on your bass or guitar.

    I’ve been using D’Addario strings for ages. Both on my basses, and my guitars.

    These bass strings are comfortable enough to play, even on the longer 3 hour+ gigs. They sound nice and bright. But the main thing is they last a long time. They retain their tuning and sound for ages which is good news for the struggling muso. Plus, who wants to keep changing their strings all the time? Not me! I don’t have a guitar tech like the stars do. Or the money!

    I have tried many different brands over the years but always come back to
    DÁddario for their great performance and longevity.

    Highly Recommended

    I have a Fender bass and the strings that came with it always had my fingers wounded after everytime I practice and play at church. When I finally decided to change the strings, I did some research and I found that this D’Addario 2-Pack Bass Strings is the best seller on the Guitar Center and Musician’s Friend website and it had pretty good reviews so I tried it. I have been using it for almost 2 months. Now my hands don’t get wounds anymore. The strings are smoother than one’s I used before and they sound better too. The price is nice for a 2-pack bass string set.
