I started using D' Addario Chromes a little over a year ago and they have become my favorite strings! I currently have them on three of five basses and have another set cut for my OLP Stingray copy that I switch out with the rounds when I want a less aggressive tone. I just love the warm mellow tone without being too dull sounding. I also love the way they feel. Playing on them seems almost effortless. I have never had one type of string that I liked as much as these. Who else loves Chromes?
