anything new. alot of bassists never change their strings to be honest. its more the pickups than the strings that make the sound 'bright' imo.

Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Yeah. I go a while without changing mine too mostly because they're "expensive" to somebody who's really tight on money but I remember changing them a while back and I got that really good sound out of some EB strings. Then this last time I changed them they were really weak and I thought maybe I'd gotten the wrong ones or something. I'm sure the design of the strings can be a big factor just as it can be with a guitar.
Don't ever respect conventional thought without reason.

Get Elixirs. Pay the $36 today, and you won't need to change 'em again until about two years from now. They'll still sound brand new, even then.
