    I use a custom jazz passive jazz with aguilar hot pickups in 60s position

    I'm looking for a string that really growls and cuts through the mix

    While I love the Dunlop SB Nickels, I have always been underwhelmed by their stainless steels. Given the options you put forth I would go with the Rotos to achieve that growly sound. Other options that I have found to work well on a Jazz bass, just for the sake of discussion, are DR Hi Beams and Sadowsky Blue Label. Both sound great and give me the growl I like on a Jazz bass.

    Super brights will be the growliest nickels. For SS i like Dr lo rider. They are NOT super high tension like people say they are but obviously less flexible than the Dunlop.
