Looking for strings that sound like

  1. Hello
    I am currently using EB Super Slinkys on all of my bass'. I seem to have the same issue with them as others do, that they are to zingy at first then tame down after about 2 weeks. I have no real complaints except for the initial zing. Is there a set or type of strings that sound like broken in EB super Slinkys? I play hard rock, metal (pick and fingers) and the tone is great once broken in but useless till then. Any suggestions. Thanks in advance. :bassist:

    Why don't you just not change your strings?
  3. Mainly because they will eventually go dead, they last quite some time but not forever. I just dont like the initialsound.

    For me the Elixer Trial strings had broken in sound right from the start. Maybe one of the coated sets by your favorite manufacturer would fit your needs.

    Elixer polywebs. Fender nickels. Almost any brand of half rounds or ground wounds.
