D’Addario EXL170 and XLB125 Strings

I’ve been using D’Addario strings since the mid seventies when I joined the Pat Metheny Group and have been using them ever since then. They sound and feel great and are an important part of my sound production.

The XL170 four string set is my preference which is a nickel round wound medium tension set. For my low B string I use the XL125 as I like the way it goes along with the XL170’s.

I use them on my various fretless and fretted basses whenever I play live or in the studio. They can be heard on thousands of recordings that I’ve made since 1976.
