Hey everyone, I am a fairly new bassist, and I am in search of some new strings for my bass. Most of the music I play has a fairly mellow feel to it, besides the occasional jazz I play. I only know of a few string companies (D'Addario, Elixir, etc.) and I was wondering what would be a good brand to buy from. Also, I've heard about several different types of strings, like roundwound and nickel-plated. Are there any specific differences between string types, or do certain ones just last longer? Well, that's all I have to ask, for now . Thanks.
