    Any of you know which set would be a good replacement for
    the Ken Smith strings on their. I really prefer Elixirs for the feel and the long wear.

    Are you replacing the factory Ken Smith strings? I believe they all ship with his Custom Balanced Taper Core strings in Medium.

    You could use any Elixir set. But I would use one with a Low-B that is Tapered for better fit in the bridge of the Ken Smith (The saddles are cut for tapered strings).

    Elixir does not make a 6 string set, so you should look at getting a 4 string set and adding a High-C and Low-B.

    Yep, replacing the ones shipped with the bass. I have Elixirs
    on my MM Sterling 5, they sound and play great. Plus my fingers
    don't get hung up on the strings when new.

    Thank you for the response.
