The XL Nickel bass strings are made with a high carbon steel core and wound with nickel-plated steel wrap wire, for consistently bright tone and smooth playability, great for a wide variety of bass styles. The 45-130 regular light strings are the most popular bass gauge, providing a perfect blend of response and playability.

Round Wound

Round wound strings have the feel and tone that most players are familiar with. This string construction combines the strength of the steel core with the tonal properties of the wrap wire alloy.

Hex Core Construction

Precision drawn hexagonal core was pioneered by D'Addario. This innovation allows the wrap wire to grip the core for superior dimensional stability, enhanced durability, and precise intonation.
