Best Steel Strings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Davidoc, Jun 3, 2002.


  1. What do you think are the best Steel strings? For use with a Musicman Stingray5? Strings is one thing that you need to rely on the opinion of others for the most part; you can't just try every brand and set.

    Thanks!

    My vote goes to Rotosounds - Swing 66s. I like the sound and feel, and find they last just fine!! Never had any problems with them!:)

    All you'll ever need. :)
    They're the finest handmade strings, and just by looking at the way they're packaged, you can tell that they were made with care.
    Sound is very nice, and they feel smoother than normal stainless strings.. almost nickel-like..
