Comments about D'Addario EXL220-5 XL 5-String Bass Super Soft/Long String Set:

After exhaustive research, these strings of this guage ended up being the PERFECT strings for my Squire MB-5 Bass. They are plenty bright, snappy & responsive for just about any style, especially Slap-Bass, where that "Piano-tone" is much needed. Don't be afraid of this Extra-Light set being too skinny in guage, as I compared them string-by-string to the existing 46-63-80-102-128 set while I was putting them on (even under a magnifier lamp)& could barely tell much difference. As a die-hard D'Addario user, these IMO are Tops !
