- 5-String version of D'Addario's best-selling flat wound bass guitar set
- Ribbon wound and polished for ultra-smooth feel and warm, mellow tone
- These strings are designed for long scale basses (34”+) and have a taper at 36 – 7/8”
- All D'Addario strings are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA
- String Gauges: Wound .045, .065, .080, .100, .132
- Tapered low B string
Many 5-string bass players prefer a tapered end for the low B string. This allows the heavier gauge low B string to be positioned on the bridge more evenly with the other 4 strings. The taper can also improve the clarity of the fundamental tone, which improves intonation.
