D'addario exl vs LaBella slappers

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by fenderbassabuse, Jan 4, 2005.


  1. Right now, how do these two compare in terms of brightness, slappability and life. I'm looking for a deep punchy growl, that when I tune down to D, still retain some tension, but still flexible enough for standard stuff.

    I play finger style about 75%-25% (compared to slap) on a fender jazz.

    Many thanks.
     
  2. I have tried tones of strings, unfortunately never tried the Labella's though, but I really like the D'addario's and use them on many of my basses.
