> I exclusively use D’Addario strings, EXL170s and 160s, with ECB80 Chromes on my fretless basses.
The best, bright tone, great for my slap-happy bass style :P
I love these strings for live gigs. They have great tone, are long lasting, are affordable & come in a variety of scales. I use them on both my long scale & short scale basses.
