"I’ve been using D’Addario strings as long as I can remember, and I've experimented with a lot of gauges."

Jimmy Plays XL Nickel 10-46


"D’Addario strings are a very important part of the technical quilt that make up my guitar tone. Whether we are in the studio or on stage, my band and I only use D’Addario strings."

Brandi Plays XL Nickel 10-52


"I use D’Addario strings on everything, acoustic and electric. In 30 years I’ve never had a bad string on a guitar."

ROUND, WOUND, AND RESPONSIVE

Round wound strings have the feel and tone that most players are familiar with. This string construction combines the strength of the steel core with the tonal properties of the wrap wire alloy.

SIX SIDES OF STABILITY

Precision drawn hexagonal core was pioneered by D’Addario. This innovation allows the wrap wire to grip the core for superior dimensional stability, enhanced durability, and precise intonation.

WOUND TO PERFECTIONS 700,000 TIMES A DAY

String winding equipment is designed and built by D'Addario's engineering team, guaranteeing a production range of 500,000 to 700,000 strings per day. Digitally-controlled string winding machines ensure productivity, accuracy, and consistency.

EXACT STANDARDS, EXTRAORDINARY SOUNDS.

So, one of the first tings people will say about upgrading a Squire Bass VI is to change the strings to a higher gauge. These strings are the same gauge as the stock strings, but the higher string tension significantly improved the playing and bridge stability of the Squire. You can get custom sets of higher gauge strings, but these definitely do the trick. I have been playing XL''s on all of my basses for a few years now, and I cannot recommend them enough. High quality, long lasting, and they sound great.

I own a 2013 limited edition Fender Bass VI as well as a 2013 Squier Bass VI. I will own the Fender Pawn Shop Bass VI soon as well, and these are the same strings (D''Addario) that my limited edition came from the factory with, and the same gauge strings the Squier came equipped with, and the same gauge the Pawn Shop model uses. While they are a lighter gauge series than the original Fender Bass VI strings of the past (those had a range of . 025-.095), again, this set contains the gauge series used on all the currently made models, including the Squier, contrary to what is listed on Fender''s Squier site. These are comparable to Fender''s current Bass VI string set, as they are the same gauge range of .024-.084. I like D''Addario''s quality, and these are no exception.

I''ve been searching for good, punchy strings for my Fender Bass VI ever since I got the bass a few years ago. The stock Fender strings that come in the bass are quite floppy. They have a great sound, but the floppiness really turned me off to them. My next stop was a set of expensive La Perla strings made specifically for the Bass VI. Despite having success with other sets of La Perlas on other basses I found the set for the Bass VI to be rather dead sounding. Strings for the Bass VI are few and far between. They need to be long, in the correct gauges, and have small ball ends. I finally found what I have been looking for all along with this D''Addario set. They are made for the Bass VIcas the primary market, but work on barritone guitars and regular guitars that you would want to have quite a down tune on. On the Fender thee are great. Perfect tension, so it''s easy to play fast and hit the notes you want with no buzzing. They also have a really good, bright, punchy sound when played through either a bass amp or a tube guitar amp. Highly recommended and will be my go to strings for the Fender Bass VI. Hey, they will probably also help your Squire sound like a better quality instrument.

Tuning up a tone or so, or bringing the action up a bit would probably help but I''m content to live with it for now. At about a quarter of the price of the only logical alternative I''d definitely suggest trying these, just don''t expect any epic sustain down the bottom end (but then you''re playing a VI, so your not really going to get that anyway)

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 11, 2019
Offer a rounder low end due to the heavier gauge compared to the stock strings you''ll get on a Fender/Squier Bass VI. You will however need to file the nut (horizontally NOT vertically!!) To get these to fit properly. Decent choice for the price.
