    Ok i kniw pretty much nothing about strings except for the gauge is.

    What type of strings are there, what difference do they make in playability and sound?
    all i know is that since my teacher put on handmade newton strings on my bass it sounds 100X better than my crappy ibanez stock strings.

    unfortunately it's a long road to travel. i like the dr lo riders for tension and long life. i used to play d'addario exl 165 but they tore my fingers up. warwick has pretty nice ones. it's really very personal.
