I'm relatively new to bass and the time has come to get some new strings. The onbly problem is i have no idea which ones to get. I use my fingers and play funk/punk etc...

Any suggestions?

I've heard nothing but good about DR's, and the search button.

I personally love the Ernie Ball Hybrid strings. I play some punk and funk stuff to and they are awesome for pick playing and the good ole fingers.

I have them on my fender at the moment, i used to swear by rotosounds and was reluctant to try anything else but these strings are god-like to me! Affordable and they sound good.

My brother just got a set of DR Black Beautys, and they are amazing. They sound very very good, and look really good too. They're a little spendy though.

i would go with rotosound 60-105 swing bass strings, roundwound, they are simply the best

I'm a proponent of Elixers, myself. But if you're not willing to shell out the cash for them, DR strings are solid.

Sounds to me like an excuse.

I've never heard a bad word about DRs or Elixers, so try them out.

The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

I use Ernie Ball Super Slinkys. So far, I like them. I might try some other ones out just to see the difference.
