Back in the day I used to like the Stainless Steel strings that came on my 80s Dyna-Bass. They were tough to find, but when I found a set at a Peavey Dealer I'd buy them. I tried lots of different strings on that bass but always came back tot he Peavey strings. They last a long time too. I like them! I like Fender and Ernie Ball strings, too, maybe the bass manufacturers know something about strings!
