: 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...
I'm using good ole' Rotosounds. My Jazz and Stingray get the standard
45-105 sets, my Rick 4001 gets the "Swingmaster" 40-100's, my 8 string
gets the RS668 set, and I'll use the RS55 compressed rounds on my fretless.
Occasionally I'll use Rotosound Flats, tapewounds, or even the Thomastik
flats on the Rick or Jazz. I'll also use the D'addario Prisms from time
to time, but I don't like their standard light guage which is 45-95.
I prefer stainless rounds, but that's just a personal preference.
