    I'm looking to try some new light gauge strings with a loose feel. I've been using Elixir .40-.95's, but I'm hearing rumors that they are getting rid of that gauge.

    I play with *very* low action and a light touch, so I like loose strings, as opposed to, say, Ken Smiths, which I found to be WAY too tight.

    Thanks for any suggestions
  2. My favorite string set is GHS Bassics L6000 40-58-80-102 it's a budget set that has a different feel than the regular Boomers, light with just enough tension for slap or some good finger work.. .
