This 5-string, hybrid set of EXL165-5 Custom Light XL Nickel Wound Electric Bass Strings from D'Addario combines the high strings from an EXL170 set (.045 and .060) with the low strings from an EXL160 set (.085 and .105). With the addition of the .135 low B, it provides players with a blend of comfortable playing tension, bright tones, and booming, tight lows. The EXL165-5 set fits long scale basses with string scale length up to 36.25".
XL strings are manufactured from nickel-plated steel, which produces a bright tone and offers an increased magnetic output. Using the company's proprietary digitally controlled machines ensures that each string will deliver clear fundamentals, accurate intonation, and enhanced tonal consistency.
