Im a beginner and haven't really tried that much, I have an old cheap Tradition bass and a Warwick Rockbass. I hated the strings on the warwick and a friend had some nylon wrapped stings. These looked cool and sounded a little better than the factory ones, but its still not what im looking for. I was a mellow sound out of it, but not too deep either. Kind of all-around strings not leaning to any extremes except being smooth sounding. One thing I absolutely hate that both sets of Warwick strings have had is a 'twangy' sound on a G string and slightly on the D string. I cant stand this since I play high up often. Any suggestions?
