String recommendation-corvette active
Any personal experiences for a nice set of roundwound strings for a Warwick corvette standard 4(bubinga)? I picked one up last week and the strings can use a swap. I'm a finger style player and like a solid bright slap tone. Rotosound? DR?

Prosteels or Fat Beams, imo.

After using/abusing many different strings/brands on my Corvette Std, I've settled on using GHS Progressives. They're one of the few sets I've had on it that really allow a lot of the character of the bubinga to come through, and still have a bright, articulate tone.

An uncommon but awesome sounding roundwound is d'addario exp reds. Copper coated steel on a hex core. The slap tone is bright and snappy. Really clear and well defined.

Cool thanks...What about just buying a set of Warwick Black Labels?

Warwick Black Labels work really well too, and sound great. They remind me a lot of our Contact Core Super Steels, or even Circle K strings. Very bright and snappy, with a lot of hi-fi sheen.

Used rotosound swing66 on my active german corvette warwick, bubinga, obvankol, wendge wood bass. Was the std active one with mec electronics. Bridge slots had to be widened to allow rotosund string 45-105 gauage strings to fit. But metal file to file slots wider per warwicks instructions was easy fix.
