    I'm curious. What kind of strings are original equipment on the following basses. Most of them market their own brand (eg: F Bass, Modulus, Smith)but I would like to know what the strings really are...Dr Hi Beams? D'Addario Slowounds? etc, etc.

    Modulus
    MTD
    Zon
    Ken Smith
    Sadowsky
    Lakland
    F Bass
     
  2. F Bass - George uses LaBella Supersteps exclusively, in the following gauges: (this is also info on his website)

    C .029", G .043", D .063", A .085", E .102", B .128"

    GHS is probably the biggest producer of OEMs.
