    Are there any strings that are bright as hell, but have a really clear B? Whenever I even just get semi-bright strings, the B sounds like crap. Also, what are the brightest strings you have ever had?

  5. Elixir NanoWebs are the brightest strings I've ever heard, though my experience isn't all that extensive.

    Agree on the Prisms. Very bright strings. I like 'em.

    I third the Prisms..D'Addario seems to make a good string for every application. Its all I use really..

    Dean Markley SR2000's are the brightest strings I have ever played. And the low B on them is phenomenal.

    Second that, too, about the B string bro. I use SR2000's on my Conklin Sidewinder 7. Very nice "ping." Or is that "boink?" :D
