I just discovered stainless....I wouldnt use them for fear of eating frets....but I think I am in love! I had a set of the old fender before they changed them to d'addarios and I love them on my jazz! I just bought a SVT2 non pro...my dream amp....and its voiced way lower then my mesa 400. Nickel strings are sounding a tad muddy with it. So I gave the Stainless a shot and they sound great! They are much more defined. I am really digging them....except the E string is a touch lacking. Can anyone recommend a good stainless I can try preferably taper for a string through jazz that has a nice low yet musical and even toned? Every review I seem to read like lo-riders great low lacking highs....SR2000s great mids and highs lack lows. Is there any that has a nice low and well balanced? smooth on the fingers and a bit higher tension for faster playing and lower set ups? I am really digging the focus they have with this amp! It almost makes a geddy sound where its vintage yet clear and cuts through....I cant stop playing Rush! I would try roto66s but I hear they destroy frets! Has anyone tried GHS contact core super steels? they sound good! I hate to buy more strings I have like 30 packs! like 10 to try! but they are all nickels and I have to have more steels for this bass and amp! I just cant get over the tone! I cant stop playing them!
