    Dear Forum memeber,

    Since a year I have been using Dean markley strings on my 6 string bass. Dean markley SR2000 Light Gauge
    C G D A E B
    .030 .044 .060 .078 .098 .125

    I really these strings but I’m also looking for other alternatives with the same gauges just to compare and experiment.

    Does anyone has some tips or advices ?

    Thx in advance.

    Kind regards,

    Roshen

    What kind of experiments are we talking here?
    I personally do not like that much tension on my higher strings.

    I use flats with similar gauges, made by GHS. Are you wanting rounds specifically?

    Pretty much every string company makes a 6 string set that compares to those gauges. Won't always be exact (actually I don't think any of them will ever be exact to those gauges), but they're comparable.
