I'm going to try a set of Lo Riders. Traditionally I always have used Nickel strings. I always found SS to bright and noisey. I did try some Fat Beams and found them lacking the tension I like, although they were all right, I took them off and went back to my Sunbeams I've been using for years. On a another recent post one TBr stated that DR told him that Sunbeams have the least tension of all there line. I found the Fats to be less tension. Lately I'm finding the Sunbeams not to cut through and I'm wondering when I try the Lo Riders if I should get the SS or Nickel. I am finding DRs in general can fluctuate in a few areas. Out of the box tone and tension. I do like the TI Power Bass on my jazz but still want to try the Lo Riders on my Lakland 4-94 before I give up on DRs.
