Decent B string?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by groveofbass, Feb 22, 2005.


  1. i just want decent reliable strings. nothing fancy or expensive. after my past two experiences of buying strings that were unuasable because of the taper i just want a usuable string. However i do need a good B string. the one on my bass now is dull and never rung out too much to begin with. I want something that will be as responsive as the other strings.

    I really like DR strings. Plain old lowriders. A good setup will help your B ring out well. I usually adjust intonation with every change of brand or type of string. Don't buy tapers if they don't work for you.

    I'll 2nd the DR Lo-Riders for a good B-string.
