    I´m looking for strings with a very good agressive growl in the lower mids.

    suggestions? :bassist:
  2. I achieved a noticable growl on both of my Ibanez with DR hi-beams. My drummer commented without knowing I had switched.
    I'm sure most Stainless steel strings increase growl, but DRs are easy to find and not too pricey.

    I´ve allready tryed the Rotosound. Yes they have a nice growl , but i´m looking for the most growl of all.
    You think stell is better than nickel?
    I thougt nickel.

    under :
    String test
    you will find a good Test about Bass strings.

    After reading my favorietes are:

    DR Long Necks (Taper Core)
    DR Hi Beam

    Warwick Yellow Label
    Dean Markley Nickel Steel

    but i can´t make a decision between them. :crying: :help:

    +1 High beams. Great tone, excellent feel.
  6. Dean Markley Blue Steel are good for low mid growl. Hi-Beams are growly too, but maybe a more upper mid growl than lower mids.

    Never tried the Hi beams, but I think the Fat Beams are awesome. I sold an Ibanez bass on Ebay once. The strings were pretty dead so I put on some new Fat Beams and was a little bit sorry I had listed it. Went from bland to bold just like that.
  10. Rotosounds hurt my fingers. Maybe that's my imagination, but I will never be buying them again. I absolutely love DRs, particularly Lo Riders. Hi Beams should do the trick.

    the most of you think Hi-Beams....I´ll try them thank you.

    I have written an email to DR:

    Hi Markus,

    I would definitely try the LO-RIDER Stainless Steel Hex Core bass strings.

    These strings will give you the "extreme low-mid growl" that you are
    looking for.

    All the best, Rosa Daza

    on the other hand in Onlineshops you can read, that the Lo-Riders are better fore slaping, and the Hi-Beams have a warm sound.

    warm means for me lower-mids!

    :help: :help: :help:

    Now which strings should i try????
