Fodera? D'Addario? Labella? any favs? looking for something new and nice on my 6'er.
MTD Nickel strings: http://www.theperfectbass.com/explo...102528101&W=STORE&P=N&S=1001081&U=1&SS=1&CR=Y
This thread title and post aren't what I responded too. I responded to original question that you quickly changed. I've never tried the MTD nickel strings, but based on your original post they are an option worth trying.
i'll admit that the mtd stainless steel literally chewed thru my hands, so while a little hestiant in trying these nickels. still, i am piqued.
I have a set of Carvin 6 string nickels on my Ibanez SR506. Nice strings; La Bella makes them. Tapered B, flexible and warm.
I continue to find Fodera's offerings my favorite....great tone, balance, long life, and decent price. I get all my strings from www.juststrings.com. I've tried all the major brands, and go back to the Fodera nickels...
woah, havent seen you in a long while... yea, i'm leaning towards the fodera strings. never tried 'em, but have always been an option.
I love the Foderas, both their SS and their nickel. A little pricey, but the service is great, and they've done custom sets for me with no upcharge.
I do a lot of my string experimentation with D'Addario XL and Pro Steel due to being able to leverage their published string data, and actually like them quite a bit for what I am doing and with my basses, but I have to say that Labella's tapercore B strings (like the .128) seem to be made for my particular 34"-scale basses.
But Knuckle Guitar Works (Skip, are you reading?) is one to watch for. The prototype set I've been testing is perfect for my approach and the B0 and F#0 both are the best I've ever used. I hope these go into production soon! You can read a little more about these toward the end of the fEarful thread in my sig.
+1,000. I have MTD's on my Lakland, and had them on a 35" sixer that I had to sell. They are my absolute favorite nickels and I recommend them highly!
bought the mtd nickels.
i'm pretty sure i tried them on a 4 string jj mtd, but the winding ends were in silver cloth. at least i think i did cause they were fairly smooth feeling, and in the past, the steel mtd strings have literally shredded my fingers.
i bought a set of the d'addario tapercore nickels to compare them to. i'll post back later.
I've been loving the MTD nickels I've got on my 635, very good strings!
Echo the MTD's....I really like 'em.
