I need a string for my needs

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by The Antipop, Jun 26, 2002.

  1. Ok, I play in a metalish/mellow band and it's time for new strings. The thing is also I play Jazz/funk and Primus whenever Im not playing with my band.

    I own a Fender Jazz 4 String and an Ibanez SR1000

    Any suggestions so the strings sound good in all the styles above?

    Several options: DR Hi-Beams (bright, growly), D'Addario XL's (growly, warm), D'Addrio Prisms (bright, bright, bright) or my current favorite string which lasts seemingly forever: Elixir Nanowebs. They feel great, sound a lot like XL's and will outlast anything out there.

    the Prisim Stainless Steels are a really bright and punchy string.
    I really got used to the Trace Elliot tapered SS Strings. I actually bought out the last 4 packs from pro AM here in Chicago since they were not making anymore Trace Elliot supplies. Now I think Gibson is using their name for amplification? Let me tell ya, they are really beating around the bush with a replacement for those strings. Or maybe they plan on keeping the old Gibson Strings for now. They still have not informed me about any makings of a new string for bass.
