Saw a post about DR strings going bad if you don’t crimp them properly: but I did not follow. Is the idea to but a bend in the string where you are going to cut it, and cut it a few mm past the bend? I have some DR Nickel Sunbeams I want to put on, but only to have higher gauge strings, not for more zing. After reading here that DRs had major issues though, I am hesitant. 6 min into this video describes what I mean: BTW, I do want to keep round-wounds on this bass. It is just that if DRs are as bad as recent posts suggest, I might stick with the D'Addario EXL170 / 0.045-0.100 that it has now, for the moment.
