    Hello all,

    can anyone give me some insight on which type of strings to buy for my f-series bass guitar. I play Christian worship in my church and need to buy some more strings very soon. I would like a little punch, so was wondering about the gauge, something not to bassy and not to trebly. I have always used the round would, steel, I have heard a lot about the dr-high beams, don't like roto-wound. so any help would be appreciated.

    This may not fit your taste. I play Country and Praise and I like the double bass sound I get from stainless steel flats and foam rubber at the bridge. I use a medium gauge .055-.105.

    I play contemporary worship as well...

    Drs are great....I also have Markus millers on some basses and love the sound I get....

    For flats I like sadowsky black labels....I typically do not like flats and like zing so stainless rounds are my "go to" but the sadowskys sound GREAT....especially on recordings.

    D'Adarrio nickle rounds or DR coated strings.


    (You might think about editing your thread title just a bit. A thread entitled "Bass Guitar Strings", in the Strings section of a Bass Guitar forum, isn't terribly informative.)
