I have a TRB-1005 I've owned for over a decade, and in that time I've only ever strung it with D'Addario EXPs in 45-130, super-long scale. They last forever, and I stocked up, so it was news to me when I went shopping for more that D'Addario no longer makes them. They still make the uncoated EXL170-5SL, but I have found over the years that I really need a coated string; even on bass, new uncoated strings are dead or a tetanus hazard in a month no matter what precautions I take. Anyway, I play skinny-stringers too, and I have my favorites there. For acoustic, I like Elixir Nanos, and Elixirs are a strong second on electric as well, with my preferred string being DR Silver Stars (or Black Beauties, not so much cause I have to have black strings for aesthetics, but because it's easier to get those in 10s at the local GC). Elixir's bass offerings are close in gauge to the D'Adds, but they do not make a five-string set in extra-long scale, and the 36" ball-to-taper length of their long-scale just isn't long enough for the TRB (I tried D'Add long-scale once, the B taper ends just before the bridge, and those are longer than Elixir according to this). So that kinda leaves DR, of the brands I regularly play. Length looks great and there are several coated options including Silver Stars and their new Dragon Skin, however I'm a little concerned about the B string. D'Add's Bs are .130", and that's worked just fine, meanwhile DR goes with .125" for a constant gauge progression in its .045 set, which could rattle in a nut groove that's had .130 in it as long as it's existed. Not a total deal breaker, but I'd prefer not to have to find a luthier in the middle of COVID who can cut me a new nut (or spend months with a slip of paper in the nut slot). For anyone else that's had to find a replacement for D'Addario EXPs, especially on a 35"-scale bass (37" from ball end to nut), what did you go with and why?
