I love the Low Riders on my Sterling. The Sterling is a bright axe and the Low Riders compliment the sound of the bass. I have been using DR High Beams on my Stingray 5 and they are a bit too bright for me. They have been on for a month and are still full of zing. I am thinking of going with the DR Low Riders 5's on that bass too. Any thoughts on the Low Rider 5's? AND MOST IMPORTANT, is the B string Tapered? Me no likey the Tapered B string.
