D’Addario has expanded its NYXL Bass premium bass string line to include three additional sets and a full line of single strings.
D’Addario says the new strings have been, “Reformulated from the ground-up and designed for all playing styles,” and that they “.,.provide more dynamic range and sustain than any other bass string on the market. Made with reformulated nickel plated steel, these strings boast unmatched sustain and harmonic response as well as a more expansive tonal palate. This new construction delivers deep, powerful lows, focused punch, and accentuated harmonics.”
D’Addario also says that NYXL Bass strings provide greater tuning stability, increased break resistance, and longer string life.
“After playing the same set of NYXL bass strings for over 3 months – in the studio and on the road with Joe Bonamassa – they have retained almost all of the rich harmonic quality they had when they were fresh. The tension is balanced, low but not floppy. They stay in tune, even after being rocked on hard. My round wound string of choice from now on,” says bassist Michael Rhodes
The new NYXL Bass sets include a 6-string Regular Light (32-100), Super Long Regular Light (45-100), and a Super Long 5-String Regular Light (45-130). The NYXL Bass single strings are available in selective gauges ranging from 32 through 135, and are offered in Long Scale, Super Long Scale, Tapered, and Tapered Super Long Scale varieties, for use as replacements or to create custom sets.
RRP for NYXL32130 6 string set is £45.
