Need new strings for five and four stringer (for punk band)

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Gandolf Bassist, Jul 31, 2001.

  1. How goes it everyone? I am in the bussiness for new strings. The ones on my fiver are wearing out and don't have the output I want. My new Epi Explorer is going to need new strings since factory ones always suck. Can anyone recomend a string that has a high output with a punchy sound, with good mids, accentuated highs and a real punchy low end. Any responses are greatly appreciated. Thanx in advance! And in case you didnt read it earlier I'm going to be playing punk and some hardcore music, so they need to be able to stand up to some heavy pick attacking, even though I still play fingerstyle alot by myself.
