    Well, hold up there, slick. "Best" and "aren't expensive" are almost always mutually exclusive.

    ...and it's metal. As long as they're round and attached to your bass at both ends, nobody will notice, or care.

    But for a start... roundwounds.

    ...... Steve Harris used flatwounds on his p-bass.... I used to use steel strings in a death metal band... I currently use nickel strings for my more current heavy metal band.

    Seriously! There is no best string for any genre of music.
