Good Funk/Slapping strings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Keepitcoolidge, Sep 26, 2005.


  1. My personal style involves a lot of slapping (funk in general). Any suggestions?

    DR


    Hi Beams or LoRiders (Stainless)

    I like them both.

    Elixirs are really good and snappy and they maintain the crispness for a while with that protective coating. But my first recommendation is either of the DR's

    Can anyone tell me what's supposed to be so special about the Fat Beams aside from Marcus endorsing them? Hex Core? Imported steel, dipped in special funk juice?

    from what i've heard, they have a bit more low-mids than the hibeams. I've never tried the hi beams, but i have fat beams on right now and i must say, they are funky!!! I love them! i recommend these.
