    What are some good strings for pick users? I am currently using stock strings from my Fender P bass. I do indeed use a pick...I was thinking of getting new strings but it seems all of you are fingerplayers and not pick players. Anyone have any advice?
     
  2. JonnyBassist, Carol Kaye plays exclusively with a pick on a P bass, she uses the Thomastik Jazz flats.

    I also use these strings on my P bass but I am a finger player.

    IMHO, it really doesn't make any difference what strings anyone uses, as long as you like your sound!

  3. I read in your profile that you play punk-rock and to me the ultimate string for that kind of sound is "rotosound swing 66's" I play fingerstyle but I played exclusively with a pick for a long time ans they sound just as good in any situation.
