    I got a used Rick that came with Rotosounds. I like the Rotosounds but with the two pairs I've used the E is always floppy with no sustain compaired to the others. I have some DR high-beams (great stings!) on my other bass. I decided to try the E string off of the DR set and it's much better, it's also not too strange sounding, it shounds just the the RS's but ever so slightly brighter with more finger noise. I'm fairly sure it won't have any negative affects but I'd rather make a thread here then break a truss rod or crack the neck or something of that nature. Is this fine?
