Corelli 370 series is the best setup for my Schuster laminated bass. They are warm, fairly resonant, and easy to play - probably because they are among the thinnest bass strings available. They die, however, on my Gliga 7/8. I'm currently using Superflexibles, but I'm not sure they're the right setup yet.
