New Strings for my Squier Jazz Bass Vintage '77
I'm new to the bass and have a quick question. I recently aquired a Squier Jazz Bass Vintage '77 and have been practicing for a few weeks. I think I'm ready to switch out the factory strings and get my own first set. Any recommendations? Keep in mind I'm playing though a Laney RB3 65 watt amp. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Although this may not be in the correct sub-section of the forum, I'm a big fan of the DR strings myself. It's all down to personal preference. Any idea what kind of stuff you're into? For example, you'll want something different if your bag is Motown than to slap bass styles. :)

You do know there's a whole separate forum devoted to strings, right?

I have Rotosound Swing Bass 66 strings on my Fender Jazz, and they sound really nice :)

I've put Curt Mangan rounds on 3 different fender jazz basses, and they all sound great.
FWIW, I have had dozens of Squiers, and the stock roundwounds that come on them are actually quite usable once broken in ... with all due respect, if you are new to bass, and only have been playing for a few weeks, and (I am making an assumption as there is nothing in your profile to tell me differently) you do not have previous experience with guitars, is there really a need to change the strings, or is it a result of a TB type forum that makes you think you need to?
... probably not what you want to hear, but strings are an endless track that could consume much time (and money) that could be better spent learning the craft ... I apologize if my assumption is inaccurate, but IMHO improving skills and abilities are much more important at this stage than searching for a 'better' string, especially if you have no idea what it is you are looking for ... if your bass was purchased new, your original strings may not even be broken in yet ... JMHO respectfully submitted having found myself there all too often gassing for something I saw or read about, when I should have been spending the time shredding in the shed ...
