    Comments about D'Addario Flexsteels Long Scale Bass Guitar Strings (45-105):

    These are great strings! I've been using these for a while now on all my basses and find them long lasting, bright, and a nice clear tone. An added benefit is that they are lower tension and easy on the fingers.

      Comments about D'Addario Flexsteels Long Scale Bass Guitar Strings (45-105):

      I did notice a difference from my old string to these. First I noticed after I installed them and stretched them they stay in tune quite well. Next the sound is Bright on the lite strings and still has that good low end. They feel good when playing.

        Comments about D'Addario Flexsteels Long Scale Bass Guitar Strings (45-105):

        I'm lovin' the playability & tone. I have tried many different brand/model over the years and have my favorites, I've been using D'Addario since 2002 more than less, and they never let me down. The flex Steels are just what I've been looking for, I'm sold. The harmonic tone articulates beautifully, the play ability an feel is just great. I would say try them if you're into the blues/rock/slap bass finger or pick players, the flex steel will cover any style of music.
