Well, i wont be posting anymore threads regarding what strings to purchase. These Lo Riders are just what I was looking for. The final test was today, when i got to hear them in a mix. Wow! Perfect. Now my Yammy's eq is flat, the Ashdown ABM is set flat and it sounds so nice, so nice. - which has the added benefit of giving me more headroom. Basically all i do to change the tone is roll the pickup selector ever so slightly and change the tube preamp blend. Tonal Panacea.
