Seriously? Strings do NOT make a noticeable difference and you won't sound the least bit more like him for using his strings. All I can tell you is that they're roundwound, not flatwound, so go out and buy some nice roundwound strings and you'll be fine.

Looking at some photos of the guy his strings have red silk on the ends...so most likely Rotos.

Apparently he plays a MM Stingray so probably uses the Ernie Ball Super Slinkies

That's like saying people who play Fender Jazz basses probably use Fender strings. Which they don't, because fender stock strings suck.

Thanks for taking me out of context. What I mean is, when you're trying to emulate an artist's sound, the strings are the least of your worries, because they make little to no difference as long as you have either flat or round.

Some other strings have red silk on the end... My stock Ibanez strings has red silk on the ends which i HIGHLY doubt were rotos as it was a £150 bass. Not only rotos have the red silk.

Ibanez basses come with d'Addario strings stock which don't have silk covered ends.

You didn't read the fact that they were the stock strings, did you?

If it's a recently bought Ibanez, they weren't the stock strings. New Ibanez basses come with d'Addarios which don't have silk wrapping at the nut end, as I just said.

Yeah, strings are rather low on the list of priorities, but say the threadstarter has the dude's EXACT setup other than the strings?

Also, you're REALLY saying you can't tell the sound of a fresh set of nickels compared to a fresh set of stainless? Or steel flats compared to nylon? REALLY?

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..
