I bought my first set of DR Lo-Rider SS because they are advertised as hot in the mids.
The intent was to counterbalance the scooped sound of my SR5HH.
They sound "new" but not any different than the factory EBMM slinky that came with the bass.
The last time I tried one of those Bronco amps, I was seriously disappointed by the major lack of midrange. Are you allergic to nickel? If not, you could try a hybrid or alloy set like Circle K's or the Ernie Balls mentioned earlier. I run Circle K's on my 4 string, they have all the snap, shimmer, and detail of SS with the warm midrange of nickels. They are a little lower tension than some other brands, tho.

Another vote for Rotosound 66 - if you're able to get the nickel-plated variant then so much the better! The stainlesses are excellent anyway, but the nickels have a slightly more rounded tone, and (I'm told) are easier on the fingertips.
Rounded relative to Rotosound, anyway - there's still no shortage of midrange honk and growl!
