EPS170-5 is the 5-string version of D’Addario best-selling ProSteels bass set. With the addition of the .130 low B string, EPS170-5 offers the ideal combination of biting high end, punchy lows and super long life. Fits long scale basses with a string scale length of up to 36 7/8 inches. 

ProSteels are one of D'Addario's brightest and most corrosion resistant strings. A specialized steel alloy delivers harmonically rich, brilliant high-end coupled with deep, tight lows that work in tandem to create the coveted "Piano tone" steel players crave. Great for both articulate fingering or aggressive picking, ProSteels give you the extra edge and punch you need to cut through the mix.
