  4. Between EB 45-65-80-100-130 vs LR 45-64-85-105-125 LRs seemed stiffest to me, if that's anything to you.
     
  5. no, i know the difference in the guages, i wanted to know the difference in the tension of each string vs the matching of the other brand.
    tension and guages are two different subjects entirely.

    carl- thanks for the info.

    anyone else with something to add to the tension feelings from eb vs DR?

    i cant give you numbers or anything on the tension, but i used to play slinkys on my 'Ray cause of the price but recently changed to DR Sun-beams for one set, and now i am onto the Lo-Riders. The DR strings are noticable more consistent in tension, and are ride tighter on your bass, which is great for acheiving lower action or for slappers.
