So I'm kinda used to my Mark bass K1 Super Combo relaying my Spector NS5XL and am now trying to settle on the right strings for the whole outfit. I want a bright "fat duck" rather than rock bright sound. I practice for hours a day and am finding I'm killing the edge on a string time quite quickly(about three weeks before the fizz has gone). Want a bright nickel wound that doesn't cost the earth or a bright set of regular round wounds that last a while longer than the rest. Any suggestions?
