Personally I don't really notice any major differences in brands. Size can be a factor but then again it's all about preferences. Really I'd say try out different brands and see what suits you, you can't really go wrong.

Get a set of calipers. I saw them do this at a guitar shop when they wanted to figure out what size strings were on a guitar before working on it.

To the TS: I use D'addario Prosteels. They're just lovely. Although, I might try out Rotos here soon, considering the general consensus.

What brand of strings are they? Where did you get them from?
#13
um they are whatever comes on a squire! ive never needed to change strings and think i might soon and i wanted to get the same gauge
#14
Take it to a shop and ask them to change your strings and to put the same gauge on. They'll measure it.

Stock Squier strings are Squier branded 45-110 nickel coated steels, as far as I can find out.

Edit: Squier's site says 45-100 actually

I'm another Rotosund fan, and I changed my strings today and my bass sounds gorgeous. I even got a low B in the pack when I didn't order a five string set lol!
