I was strictly a medium gauge player and hated the stock sx strings that came on the bass. I decided to string them back up after playing my friends mtd and assuming that he had light gauge strings on his 6er. his mtd 6er is so comfortable and easy to play so I figured id give light gauge another go. WOWOWOW these strings are so comfortable and sound awesome when slapped, popped and for holding chords. I can bend them and do trills and expressions easier. Its wonderful. Any others convert their gauge up or down recently?
