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.
Gauges: .045; .065; .080; .100

Comments about D'addario Ecb81 Reg Light Chromes Flatwound Electric Bass 4 String Set:

This was the first flatwound string I've used. Love the sound and "thump" I get with them on a P bass. When your fingers get a little wet the strings get sticky--solved that with a little string lube. Absolutely no noise when sliding down the string, no longer have to think about string noise during transitions. Strings seem a little stiffer due to the winding but I was able to quickly get used to that. They do have silk wrap at the tuning machine end--was a little concerned about it fraying by the string keeper / guide. Just what I was looking for.
