    I use these roundwound strings for fretless and fretted 5-string bass. The set is well balanced tonally, and has a nice feel. The B-string sound is very good on a 35" scale bass. A set usually lasts about 6-mos of regular use in practicing, recording, and performance, with renewal signified by greater effort in tuning.

    Pros
    • + Economic, long lasting
    At the beginning they feel .. "new". Lol, I really like them after they have been played for a bit and have been broken in.

    I really like these strings and they're really good for the price. Make sure you price match at GC ;)

    I use the six string set and the high B string has put up well with all my slapping. I am actually surprised at how long its lasted.

    Will be getting another set in a few weeks :)

    Pros
    • + reasonably priced
    Cons
    • - clanging tone
    to my ear, d'addario XLs sound like somebody banging pots and pans together, an unpleasant clanging. their windings feel particularly coarse and uncomfortable to me; they tear up my fingers like i was playing a round file (and i play a lot - i have pretty good callouses). i prefer a string with a smaller diameter outer wrap and a sound more like a "zhing" rather than a "DING". i'm sure lots of people love these strings, but they're not for me.
