It's been 3 weeks since I got a Ray 34. I play it several hours a day, and sometimes more than 5+ hours a day. The D and G strings are starting to sound dead (Factory original strings). Is this normal? And what type of strings came with the Ray34? In my short experience with Bass, I've only experienced Chromes and the Daddario EXL170 which sounded good and lasted longer than the current strings on the Ray34. I'm seeking round wound strings 45 to 100 or, 45 to 105. Something that feels smoother than the factory strings (no flat or half wound), and something that will last longer. Any suggestions recommendations is appreciated.
