Due to a finger injury I play mostly with a pick, and I've been very happy with DR strings, especially Fat Beams on my G&L SB-2 and modded MIM Jazz. One of my J-basses now has Sunbeams, and they're great for maintaining a fat, heavy sound with a pick, but the Fat Beams have a little more "crunch," which sounds great in a band mix. I also like the tone of nickel Lo-Riders, but not their stiffness.
