I've been on a total string buying kick. It's so much fun to try to strings I'm getting addicted to ordering them... (From BassStringsOnline, of course) Strings for my upright are around $250 a set so these $25 - 30 purchases from BSO is just too enticing... HELP!!! By the way, so far my favorites are DR Hi-Beams and RotoSound 66... After 25 years of playing I finally got a set of RotoSounds and put them on yesterday. They seem to be a great 'base-line string' - they have less 'personality' (or mid scoop) than the Hi-Beams. Just a good even sounding string...Not as good for slap as the Hi-Beams. But the feel 'fast' and artificial harmonics speak really well.
