D'Addario ECB81M Chromes Flatwound Bass String (Regular Light, Medium Scale)

Craft rich and warm jazz and R&B tones with the mellow sound of these flatwound bass strings from D'Addario.

D'Addario Chromes Flatwound Bass strings are famed for their smooth feel and warm, mellow tone. D'Addario EBC81M Chromes are flatwound regular light gauge, medium scale bass strings (Gauges: .045, .065, .080, .100 to be exact). The strings are wound using an outer flattened, "ribbon" wire which is then polished to a smooth finish. Chromes deliver a deep, rich low end tone that's ideal for jazz and R&B, but also has applications in contemporary pop music.

Flatwound bass strings define the warm, tight bottom of R&B and Jazz. Complex combinations of interlocking underwindings on a hex core build a foundation for the delicate outer ribbon winding. Each string is ground and polished to produce an incredibly smooth surface.
