Ok, I'd been putting off re-stringing both my basses for a while now. I've been using the Lakland brand mediums on my 55-01. I had tried some GHS boomer nickles, but didnt really care for the feel or the sound, & missed how the bass sounded when I first got it... So, I just went right back to the Lakland brand. On my Warmoth PJ, I had been using SIT Stainless Rock Brights. This was an experiment. These were WAY too bright, & picked up a ton of finger transfer noise... But, I LOVED the feel, so I kept them on, waiting for them to "loose some zing". After a YEAR, they never did... they just stopped intonating... So, I had the idea, I'd go w/ DR Lo-Riders on my 55-01, & Hi-Beams on my Warmoth PJ, that way I'd get a taste of both. Only problem is, GC was out of Lo-Riders... so, I just went w/ Stainless Hi-Beams for both... I must say, I'm pleasantly surprized, & now consider myself a DR convertee... This may sound rather haphazard, but the reason I choose them, was the continual rave reviews DR Hi Beams get around here... Thx everyone!
