My favourite strings. Great Price, and the delivery was quick

As expected

This product shipped quickly and I received it within a few days. Strings were as expected, I find D'Addarios fairly consistent. Although these strings are labelled "long scale" they aren't long enough to string a 35" (long scale) through the body - as the string tapers off at the headstock end, and get thinner before it reaches the nut. Need to string it through the bridge instead. FYI anyone considering getting these strings for through-the-body on a long scale bass.

Fast Shipping
