What string materiel do you prefer? Ive tried stainless and nickel roundwounds and think they both sound great but really cant decide which last longer. I play fingerstyle 50% of the time, slap pop and tap the rest, for about 2 hours a day. All types seem to last about a month! If I specify: DR HIGH BEAMS (STAINLESS) and DR LOW RIDERS (NICKEL) I would like to hear what you think of these two types (I specified just two for simplicity). Also what are your thoughts on gague? im using .035 .095 (4 string) Elites at the mo, and find smaller guage more 'pliable' and nicer to slap. Thankyou for your comments and help.
