would you suggest for a sound in between heavy and in your face.
(I just tried some Ernie Balls but, they definitely aren't for me.)

thank you

Try some Elites.

Although I would say that your bass and eq has a far greater effect on your punch and power, but whatever.

I also use Roto Swing 66's.

I bought the heavier gauge to make it a pit easier to play faster, I neglected to remember its a bit harder on the fretting hand though :P .

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Ernie Ball Bass strings are my favorite, but I guess they werent for you. After that I guess I would go with either Thomastik Infelds or Elixirs.

I would be a member of others. While more expensive than some, they last longer. Wonderful sound.

I saw a guy at Mayhem Festival with a DR Strings shirt. I thought it was cool even though I don't use the strings

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

Really? They're quite a bit more than Ernie Balls for me and a little bit more than D'Addario.


Whoops, my bad. They are a bit more expensive than D'Addarios. But they cost me the same as Ernie Balls. I either buy from MF or Ebay. On Ebay there is some money to be saved, but if I'm buying other stuff like patch cables and whatnot, I go with MF.
#22
Correction, if only MF shipped more stuff to Canada and in Quebec.

If only MF shipped more than a pittance of stuff to Canada I'd be rolling in the dough. Even eBay usually saves me nothing when you add shipping.


Thats what you get with your ****ing dollar and all that. There are no sites in Canada?

I am also going to vouch for Rotosound Swing 66 strings.
Today i put a year old set of these on my jazz and they where still brighter than the stock fender strings which i have been using for a few weeks. Mind you i have boiled them, but this was a while back now.

Honestly, buy Rotosounds and never look back. Most people eventually end up turing over to Rotosounds at some point and sticking with them. They've been in the business the longest, and they really do make the best, longest lasting string. I've tried fender strings and 2 sets of each: Ernieball hybrids, DR hi-beams, and D'addario's. Roto's stay sounding good for the longest amount of time BY FAR.
