    Im curious about what strings you prefer to string on your elricks. I have minimal experience with diiffrrerent brands, Ernie Ball, Rotosound, and DR. I liked DR best but I want to try other brands. So what do you use and why? Also, do you prefer taper cores for the B and E or not.

    I use DR Fatbeams mostly. I've got a set each of DR Lo's SS, and Nickel, on hold at the local store. Can't wait to try them out.

    I switched from D'addarios Nickels. They're okay too. Nice for the price, but not as crisp. My new bass that arrived last month, came with Elrick Nickels. Really nice strings. They're really bright, like Sadowsky Nickels, and still warm. I'd be interested in checking out a set of his SS.

    I prefer taper core B.

    I like Dean Markley SR2000 with my Elrick basses. They complement the bridge and have a nice ring. Dave
