iV been playing bass for maby 2 years now. At first i had a crappy austin p bass wanna be thing, it was bad, and i put some GHS really thins strings on it, and hated it. Then about a year ago, i bought a MIM fender 4 string jazz bass from my instructor. When i went to put some new strings on it, he reccomended some Ernie Ball roundwounds 50-70-85-105's for it. So i put thoes on, and kept them. Then i wanted to put some new strings on about 2 weeks ago, so i bought a pack of the same thing. I'm too afraid to experiment with other strings because im afraid ill hate them and its just a waste of moolah. Anyhoo, tonight i was at a local music store called "music go round" and my friend and some guy that worked there recoomened D'addarios or whatever. So im thinking of giveing them a shot. I dont rememebr what gauge they are, there in the box with the orange circle and they had 3 different kinds there, these were in the middle, they wernt ligtt or heavy, theyre like medium. What do you guys think. Get the d'addarios or stick with the slinkys. heres a pic of the slinkys.
