D'Addario is proud to offer the EXL170 Nickel Wound Bright Round Wound Electric Bass String set. These precision-wound strings are crafted using D'Addario's digitally controlled winding machinery to deliver clear fundamentals, superb intonation, and unparalleled consistency. The nickel-plated steel wrap wire provides a bright tone with excellent magnetic output, ideal for a variety of musical styles.

Digitally Controlled Winding for Optimal Tonal Performance
D'Addario's state-of-the-art winding technology ensures each string in the EXL170 set is uniformly wound to the exacting standards required for professional-level performance. The result is a balanced tension across all strings, precise intonation up and down the fretboard, and a consistent sound from string to string. Combined with the nickel-plated steel wrap wire, these digitally controlled winds produce crisp, articulate lows, resonant mids, and clear, singing highs with plenty of harmonic overtones.

Versatile Gage for Comfortable Playability
The EXL170 set features a versatile .045-.100 gauge that provides a familiar feel for most bassists. The lighter bottom end facilitates quick, articulate fingers while still producing a firm, punchy low E. The gradual taper towards the higher strings gives you flexibility and comfort for advanced playing styles. Whether you favor fingerstyle plucking, aggressive pick playing, or slapping and popping techniques, the EXL170 set handles it all with ease.
