Dean Markley's new XM (extra-medium) set are the newest addition to their NickelSteel Bass Signature Series of bass guitar strings. Available in a 4-string or 5-string set, XM bass strings offer the same solid, full bright sound that the NickelSteel Bass brand is known for, and they’re made with Dean Markley’s time-tested process that ensures a smooth feel with long-lasting tone.

In the 4-string XM package, players will find a set of G, D, A and E strings with gauges measuring .050, .070, .090, and .110 mm. In the 5-string package, players will find the same gauges with an additional low B string measuring .130 mm, now the thickest string in the entire series.
