this is my current bass, a schecter 5 string http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Schecter-Stiletto-Elite5-Bass?sku=513052&src=3SOSWXXA playing through an ampeg svt 4 pro with ampeg speakers... i'm looking for some good string for slap technique without loosing solid low end? anyone have recommendations? someone told me about ernie ball, but i heard they loose life fast. i usually stick to finger style and can get away with "dead" strings but no anymore with slap stylings. advice please for the new guy!
