Description

D'Addario Chromes Flatwound Bass strings are famed for their smooth feel and warm, mellow tone. The strings are wound using an outer flattened, "ribbon" wire which is then polished to a smooth finish. Chromes deliver a deep, rich low end tone that's idea'l for jazz and R&B, but also has applications in contemporary pop music.

      First time buying flatwounds..decided to try them out on my backup bass. It's quickly becoming my number 1! The tone/feel are actually stretching me outside of my normal playing style. Really glad I decided to give them a shot.

      D'Addario flatwound string review

      Comments about D'addario Ecb81-5 Reg Light Chromes Flatwound Electric Bass 5 String:

      I've played bass for over 20 years. I've never honestly been very particular about the strings I use. My son has now been playing bass for about 3 years, and he's a tech kid, very particular about his gear. He turned me on to these strings, and I love those moments when you learn from your kids. He was 100% right in terms of the playability of these flat wound strings. So I had him restring my bass with them, and I love them. The sound is rich and warm, and I feel like my playing is smoother with them. Highly recommend.
