Contacted the exterminator at mymusicstuff.com and he sent me his number one agent - Thom' Infeld. I have implemented 'TI's' "JF345" formula on my Stingray5 and killed the crickets! Seriously though, what a great match on an active bass. My D and G strings are now just as full and balanced as the others regardless of where I am on the fretboard. Still plenty of bite, but more warmth and character. More control over my tone. I've had the JF344s on my jazz bass for years and was contemplating the switch on the SR5 for months now. A solid improvement I think.
