'One of the main reasons I am playing D'Addario's is because of the Chromes. This is the quintessential fat R&B sound ... not just R&B though, it could be rock, it could be anything.' - Chris Chaney of Jane's Addiction
D’Addario ECB82 Chromes Warm/Mellow Flat Wound strings for electric bass guitar provide the low-end punch needed for today’s R&B, jazz or rock. These D’Addario strings start with a hexagonal core wire with a high carbon steel content and then they are wrapped with a flat “ribbon” wire to get them a smooth and polished feel and a warm, mellow tone. D’Addario’s precision, computer-controlled manufacturing process ensures consistency and enables a tight core tension that results in a harmonically rich, long-lasting string.
The gauges of these medium strings are 50, 70, 85 and 105. The set has a scale length of 34 inches.
