Bright strings for me

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by *insertcoolname, Aug 25, 2007.

  1. I own a Schecter Custom 5 that is all stock. I just want suggestions as to what would be good strings that are bright but not over the top being that the bass is already pretty bright. I've tried DR hi-beams heavy guage but those didn't fit my fancy. The cheaper the better, too.

    Have you ever tried EB Slinkys?
  3. Not yet. Would you suggest them? I have heard mixed opinions but most have been relatively positive.

    D'addario XL stainless steel are ok. If they are too bright for you try XL nickels. And they are cheap

    Rotosound Swingbass 66. My only 5er has these, and they're bright without going overboard. My bass came set up with DR Hibeams as well, and they sounded dull and flat, the Rotos brought new life to my bass.
  8. rotosound swingbass 66 steels, i love em, and so does lots and lots of people.
  9. Well I just ordered D'addario XL's so I hope they're good.
