For years I have used the 8250M taperwounds on my Sting bass with great results and very little fretwear. Now, however, these same strings do not sound right, the E especially. I went with flats for awhile, but the Sting's higher registers seems to come alive with rounds. Any viable alternatives to the 8250M's? I was thinking D'Addario's extra-long 45-105 but am open to suggestions.
