I just bought a Squier J Bass, and i want to change the strings. However, i have very little experience with bass strings, so i was hoping someone could help me.

I was looking at half wound D'addario, but im not sure if half wounds are any good. I want strings that give a nice sound when slapped/popped, but also with fingers.

I dont really have a price range, i just need ideas to get me started looking.


EDIT: I play in a band, and i dont really slap that much, so the sound when playing with my fingers takes precedence over the sound of slap.
