I just got an Axcelerator 6 from bassdr , and it's great. I have Lo-Riders on it now, and if they last a couple of months, fine. However, I've had trouble in the past with stainless strings dying fast, so I'm looking for some that will keep the bright, slappable sound for a long time, and have a nice, deep fingerstyle tone. Is that too much to ask? Roto 66's sound great. For about a week, and then the B string dies. I haven't tried Hi-Beams or Fat Beams yet. I also haven't tried LaBella Deep Talkin' or Hard Rockin' steels. So any advice or experiences with these (or others) would be most welcome.
