"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 ECB81 Chromes Bass Guitar Strings Regular Light .045-.100 offer a warm, mellow tone and a rich, low end punch with a smooth, polished feel, thanks to being wound with flattened "ribbon" wire.
All D'Addario strings are precisely wound around a hexagonally shaped high-carbon-steel core wire by computer-controlled machines guaranteeing clear intonation, rock-solid fundamentals, and incomparable consistency in every string. The tight core tension produced through this rigorous quality-controlled process results in a harmonically rich, longer-lasting string.
