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; .132

U keep making them I'll keep buying them


Never a complaint with these strings, great tone .



Excellent strings, great sound and great service!


I love these strings, and they came with great customer service.




I would recommend these strings to anyone


I have used D'addario strings for years on bass as well as guitar, this was the first time I used their flatwounds for a fretless 5 P Bass. Very smooth but very reactive strings as all D'addarios are. A little more expensive than others but worth it.

Great Strings!


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


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.
