I must say that I personally prefer DR's to any other string--and I mean pretty much ANY other string--I've tried Smith's, D'Addario's, Dean Markley's, Elixir's, and a host of other "top-brand" strings, but none have the brilliance and life of DR's. As far as some to avoid, Rotosound strings are one brand which you should strenuously avoid. They are produced using inferior methods and the company's quality control is less than splendid. Renowned bassist Billy Sheehan cancelled an endorsement deal with them because he recongnized how poor the quality of their strings were. I'd advise you to go with one of the more reputable (albeit more expensive) string-makers (such as those I mentioned earlier) as the string is the single most important part of a bass guitar--it's the part that makes the sound.
Hope this helps.
