Im not talking about dullness and brightness but actual tone ie. highs mids and lows.
The strings on my bass are beyond dead (boiled cleaned etc) due to roughly 4 hours practise every day for 6 months so its time to replace them. Which strings are best for metal (drop tuning, cutting mids and boosting bass and treble and playing with a pick sometimes.)

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

this.

and all your tone comes from the strings- I currently have an unstrung guitar, no matter how hard I strum it, it never has any good tones. in my experiences, the lack of strings has everything to do with this.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

seriously, not too much between brands, it's all rounded metal wire things. the big boost is them new strings, because they don't have your icky cooties and oils mudding them up.

flats of course, come precootied.

Just put a fresh set of Stadium Elites on today, prefer them muchly over Rotos. I'll have to see how they age, though.

I lol'd.

I'm still looking for my favorite strings. It's hard to get the new string feel all year.

EB's sound good but die pretty fast. GHS Boomers die VERY fast.

Roto Swing 66's sound amazing fresh, and when they die, they're still good. Go with them.

"Tone is all in the fingers."

strings and all that other stuff matters.
Just not as much as your touch and how you approach the intrument.
