Ok, I've tried not to make this thread a "which brand is better"-thread, but it turned out that way anyhow! I've tried alot of strings lately, and it's getting VERY expensive! (a set of DR's can easily cost you $50,- where I live). I really like the Slowounds, they almost give me the full fat sound of Blood Sugar Sex Magik by youknowwho, but I would like them to have just a little more BITE and that funky bottom of the Lo-riders, which in turn misses out on the mids. I'm wondering how the does the Hi-beams fit in here? I know about the highs, but how about the mids? Is it easier to make it growl due to the lower tension compared to the lo-riders? Is there a string out there which will give me the full body of the Slowounds AND the bite of DR strings? I play mostly fingerstyle (nobody wants to hear slap these days! ...and the lo-riders allready won that category!). Soundwise I think the top is BSSM and the Marcus Miller sound... - is that too much to ask of a string? My gear is a StingRay5 and SWR bass750 + 2xGoliathIII Any input would be much apreciated - thank you sir!
