I've only used generic stock and rotosound swing 66 and I'm sure you can guess which I prefer. I recently put a pair of flatwound chromes (d'addario) on my guitar and I might do the same with my bass because I love how they feel and sound.

Rotosound 66 and Nexus coated, DR High Beams, Sunbeams, and Extra Lifes. I'm going to try Stadium Elites next time I need to new strings. I might try Optima Golds sometime. Expensive, but they're supposed to last a long time.

D'Addario. Particularly the ones I have now, which I believe are the EXL170s (.045-.100, nickel wound, bright, long scale).

Elixirs are pretty good for me at the moment, but I'm still trying to work out my ideal tone from my rig, so they're bound to change (if even temporarily).

I prefer Ernie Ball Super Slinkies
and Rotosound Swing 66's



-1 On the Ernie's. I can't say I've played a worse string, I was sorely disappointed.

+10 on the Roto's though. Very nice, strange coating though.

D and G are my favorite. But E and A are also good. The B string is.... interesting.

SIT Powersteels because they make nice strings for 6 and 8 string basses.

Started with D'addario
Upgraded to Rotosound
Moved to DR Highbeams
Moved to Hybrid Slinkys

Tested Warwicks, Dean Markleys, Elixirs, EXPs, EB Flats, Fenders, etc. etc....

Upgraded to La Bella Deep Talkin' (Great great strings! Rounds and Flats alike)

I now am, and will remain a devoted fan of Thomastik Infeld Flatwounds! The sound answers MY question of "why do you want to play bass?"

DR highbeams! 0.45 - .105! Love the tone and the feel. I tried Rotos' 66 but they didnt last very long and they really tore up my fingertips :| Although they sounded amazing. But so does the high beams!
Baaaaaaazz
