Need new strings for my Carvin.

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by count_funkula, Nov 1, 2001.

  1. I need to try a new brand of strings. The Blue Steels that used to sound so good on my Jazz bass just don't do it on my 5 string Carvin.

    Here is what I need. I perfer a medium gauge, tapered at the bridge, 34" scale. As far as sound goes, I like really mild, smooth highs. I stay away from the clanky, harsh stuff. Warm and smooth it the best way I can describe what I like in a string.

    Any suggestions?

    The stock Carvin strings that came with my LB70 where way to twangy. If you want tapered you can try DR Longnecks. I;ve never played with them, but if they are like other DR strings they are probably great.

    I have an LB76 and the Carivn strings sound the best out so far.
