DR Low-Riders are great when using the neck Pu and the tone all the way down.. great mid scooped jaco sound in my jazz with S.Duncun AntII pus.
Now i'm trying Rotos 66' 95-75-60-40 gauge. Tried on my fretted, on my fretless, great sounding, clear bottom end, not muddy but they lack midrange imho. tone all the way up goes way bright and trebly, all the way down with the neck PU but now i can't get that jaco or even better the Sinclair (caravan era) tone, i could nail with the DRs..
It's all a matter of taste.
I want to put samples and compare two in both fretted and fretless jazz basses.
