1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Which to use first?

    For comparing strings I like to string up B, A and G with one type and E and D with the other type so I can really hear the differences.

    Rotosounds. The first roundwound on the market, and 50 years later, still the best.

    I don't know what the main differences are, but If I were trying those brands, I'd try Hi Beams or Fat Beams, personally. I know that Rotos are my tone, and I love them, but I'm just so damn curious about DR. Everyone loves them, and a friend with them gets a really nice fat tone.

    that's just me, though.
