D'Addario EXL160 Gauge Nickel Wound Electric Bass Guitar Strings

The D’Addario family has been making strings since the 1600s. They’ve been a key part of the industry since its inception, and judging by their place in the modern guitar and bass guitar string landscape that doesn’t seem like it will be changing any time soon.

Specifications:

  • Gauge: Medium (.050 to .105)
  • Material: Nickel-Plated Steel
  • Coated: No

The D’Addario EXL160 Medium Gauge set is made from nickel-plated steel. This means that this set is going to have a great combination of warmth, punch, and articulation; making it a great fit for most modern genres of music.

You can also still get a jazzy or more vintage tone with these strings, but if that’s what you’re looking for you may be happier with a pure nickel set.

This set will fit long-scale basses though, as with any other long-scale guitar string, it will also fit bass guitars with a shorter scale length.

These were previously on our main recommended list and only came off due to us changing our guide to focus on standard gauges. You can see our current recommended list here: The Best Bass Guitar Strings.
