  1. Sup, bass-guiteers, wanna pick a set of strings to get woody old-rounds tone (mind Joe Dart, David Labryere and so) - the question is: which set sound better after
    few months of playing in your experience - Roto's 66 (40-95) or Dunlop SB (40-100)?

  3. David LaBruyere has used old (as in years old) Roto Stainless Steels on his Fender Jazz.

  4. ValeriusCrow,
    The Rotos get a lot of love on this site for their tone, but not their longevity. Out of the two of them, the DSB is going to retain their tone a lot longer.
     
  5. Maybe I wasn't clear enough - but I'm into dead steel rounds sound - only issue is that some of steel sets start sounding vintagy - and some just die without a chance) Both players I mentioned use pretty old sets of strings

  6. Fair enough! Once the Rotos die, you'll probably love them. It won't take too much time to have them the way you want them (just grin & bear it until then).
