Strings
 
What are yalls favorite kind of strings?

epitaph 2006-09-03 03:32

DR Hi Beams. I also like the basic Rotosound set I have in my Spector, they are
almost like the Hi Beams, just much more cheaper

I use rotosound swing bass, they sound/feel good and last long/keep there tone if you apply fast fret to them every month or so.

can somone suggest me some uber good 5 string bass strings. plz

sixsicsix 2006-09-03 12:09

avoid elixers...
my low b gets frayed after only a week or so of use(by that I mean the coating they apply starts to peel off) and i never touch a plectrum to my bass...EVER

go with spector strings...warwick black labels...or d'arios(dunno how to spell it)

Requiem 2006-09-03 12:11

i think im going to go with the one Epiatph told me about thanks guys.

Good choice. The Hi Beams dont last for as long as the other as expensive brands, but they certainly sound the best for the period they're alive. These
are the Rotosounds I recommend: http://www.rotosound.com/RB45.gif / RB-45.
I have these Rotosound nickels in my Warwick:
http://www.rotosound.com/nickel66.gif / but I dont like them that much
The D'Addarios I had were awful. I also tried to Warwick red labels for fun, stay away from them

ok thanks :beer:

Since I have shit gear, I don't experiment with many types of strings..I normally use Ernie Ball Regular Slinkys.

Dean Markley Blue Steel's were by far the worse I've even bought...I ended up snapping them all within a very short time.

sixsicsix 2006-09-03 13:38

ive only ever snapped one bass string in my life
D string trying to tenor tune to play norwiegen wood
the basterd shot out the back of the bridge and flew across the room
