I kind of like a bass sound with a bit of bite, so I've always used stainless steel strings plus the occasional set of nickels when I couldn't get any steels. Thing is, I noticed that some stainless steel strings have a very "high" top end, not a lot of mids and lots of bass, which makes them sound a bit muddy when their freshness is gone. Is it just me, or do nickels not "age" this badly or is it just my imagination? In closing, could someone recommend me some strings to me that sound bright and snappy, have strong high mids and not that much bass? My Status fiver has enough bass of its own which can sometimes be too much, which I'm trying to correct with a set of bright strings.
