: Hey bass folks. Common topic. But maybe hepful for everybody. What brands/models/gauges are your favourite when it's about STRINGS... And why. I've been quite happy with some GHS these last months, but I'm gonna try a Dean Markley Blue Steel set for tomorrow gig. Said to last longer...
Down here in Argentina there's not a lot of variety when it comes to strings, so there's not a lot to try out and compare (you WILL find the most common sets, but good luck trying to get something slightly more uncommon), and more often than not you're stuck to whichever brand/model the importers felt like importing this month.
However, I did get to try both DR Lo Riders and Dean Markley Blue Steels. Both of them sound excellent and last a lot. By the way, you just reminded me I have to change strings soon...
Buena suerte and keep your bass up front in the mix,
