why is this thread in ' basses ' and not in 'strings' ??
My thoughts exactly.
you can get tapered d'addario slowounds...only the b string is tapered---not sure if both the .125 and .130 come tapered, though, but they sound great on my warwick thumb 6 and curbow rockwood 6.
LaBella Slappers. and they're not just nickel plated, they're all nickel if i'm not mistaken. had them on my Elrick 5, and the tone was pretty damn nice. but i recently switched to DR Sunbeams for the heck of it. but they're not taper and have a full wrap down there. still, the Labella's will be a part of my string choices.
nickel isn't a ferrous material, sir...there's gotta be some iron in there somewhere...in the core maybe?
Pedulla nickels (My favorite nickels) . Tapered B and E strings.
Smiths or Foderas.
I'd say D'addario slowounds if your looking for a smooth feel, Elixir are good for long lasting and great sound, they are pretty smooth also
oh!! you were only referring to nickel strings, well check out elixir nonetheless
Warwick yellow labels. I like them very much. The gauges are .045 .065 .085 .105 .135. They don't die very quickly and they growl!!!.
S.I.T. Powerwound Nickel. Very good low-end and the price is right.
wow, i didn't know that the yellow labels now came with a tapered b string...el-coolio
GHS Progressives are Alloy 52. They are taperwound on both the B and E strings.
