I hate changing strings on my go to basses! I have an Ibanez SR 900 that absolutely kills it as a rock bass! If I have to play anything heavy from the 70's, this bass just has it. I bought it used for my son a little over a year ago. Used clearance at GC here in Baton Rouge for $174.00. It has what appears to be a cigaret burn between the pickups, the pots feel like someone might have spilled some maple syrup on them at some point, the strings awe well worn, but man she just has it! Oh how I wish she were a five string! Anyway, I broke the D string last week while playing live. I've no idea what she's strung with (probably Elixers like many other Ibby's), so I'm thinking about what to grace her neck with. I tend to over think / complicate / never leave well enough alone when it comes toner stringing my basses. I was just perusing Bass Strings Online, reading about different strings. I found these: http://www.bassstringsonline.com/De...s-Steel-Bass-Strings--4-String-Set_p_987.html I know there tends to be a lot of snake oil hype in string advertising, but the description of the string fits what I'm looking for (a round wound that doesn't make so much noise from my fretting hand [I know, I know...technique]). I'm sorta hoping these will be rounds that sound a little more broken in when new. Any experience with these strings??
