rotosound swing bass 66 longscale. It should be common knowledge.
what a waste of a perfectly good sig.

go with DR, the life on those strings are insane.

ddarios are decent, they have a smoother feel, GHS suck, don't bother when them.

The bass SHOULD cover the bottom end at the very least.

How does Dunlop strings compare to others?


I wasn't even aware they made strings... that probably tells you something about them.

At any rate, the two best strings that I've tried have been D'Addario and Rotosound.

Dang, all this peer pressure... and my Slinkies do seem to be going dead faster, that must be the placebo effect. Power of suggestion. A brain bug.

Sigh... that's it, I can't stand it, I'll have to buy D'addarios next time I need strings. Darn you bass forum and your inherent potential for elitism that results from a gathering and collection of opinions and experience!!!

Best I have tried are Warwick EMP strings. Very well balenced sound with a touch of growl. I find them to be very good strings to complement more modern basses, and to show of the basses natural sound.

I did try rotosounds once, and they were very good strings as well.

Yeah, I've grown fond of warwick strings too, they're a bit brighter than rotos in my opinion and seem to last longer (to me anyways). Still like rotos though, they have a very good midrange edge to them. I haven't tried the EMP's. What's so special about them, are they coated or something?

I say I do like the hybrid slinkies. They sounds great, but they do die quicker than most of the other brands.
