D'Addario is a latecomer to the carbon treble party. In my opinion, it was well worth the wait. Although these trebles have the same feel and density as their competitors, they are much warmer and do not suffer the same, intonation problems; octaves at the 10th fret and beyond sound perfectly in tune. As for the Dynacore basses: I'm a die-hard fan of the traditional, Pro Arte basses. It would be nice if D'Addario eventually sold these trebles individually and/or in a trio without being attached to a specific set (much like the Titanium trebles). Take note that the EJ45FF has a total set tension of 94.55 lbs; Savarez 500AR has a total set tension of 90.23 lbs. Consequently, I would consider the D'Addario set to be rather stiff, by comparison. A comparison of the high tension sets between the competitors (D'Addartio EJ46FF vs. Savarez 500AJ) is 102.63 lbs and 97.08l bs, respectively. To sweeten the deal, D'Addario being a domestic brand, the prices for the sets are lower also.
