    ive always wondered if there is any strings that will hold this sound for a long period of time? i love it, but i know it usually goes away once the strings are a few weeks old

    A few weeks is all I ever got. I've had good luck with Ernie Balls, they sound good with a pick on p-basses. Cuts through real well.
