    Agreed... Another thing, there's plenty of other Music Man's than the "stinger."

    For example, my lovely Sterling. :)

    I haven't changed my strings yet.
    Haven't really found a need to yet.
    I generally play my strings for 6 months to a year, before I replace them.

    My next set will be the same set that was originally on there, considering I got them free from Ernie Ball after registering my bass, and they're what was originally on the bass (when I bought it). :)

    Ernie Ball Super Slinky
     
  16. I just bought a Stingray last Saturday, and I assume it's got Ernie Ball slinkys on it. I've heard other people say they're not that good, but, so far I like 'em. I just registered my bass too, so they should be sendin' me another set. They have a stiff sort of feel to them. Not bad.

    Hell yeah...I also put on GHS Bass Boomers and I like those too...
     
  18. I read the other day on EB's FAQ. Yes the SR has Slinky's. They all do.

    I think I may experiement with some stainless steel strings, like maybe some of GHS's brighter strings, or maybe some DR's. :)
