Do the DR nickel strings have a lower tension than the same gauge strings in stainless? Background to follow. I just replaced the .130-.o45 set of Lo-Rider stainless strings with a set of the exact same gauge Lo-Riders in nickel. The bass in question is a Lakland Darryl Jones 5, and it is set up with slightly low action and very little relief in the neck. With the previous set of strings, there was no fret buzz, yet immediately after installing the set of nickels and tuning them, theres a substantial amount of fret buzz uniformly across the neck, and I can tell that there's essentially zero relief. I've got a gig tomorrow night, and will go ahead and give a quick 1/4 turn to the truss rod to loosen it and add a little relief, but I'm just curious if anyone knows if this is expected, or if DR publishes the tension numbers for their strings.
