    i'm looking for some strings preferably medium light-light guage. something that will last a long time, and are smooth feeling. I'm putting elixirs on my fretless, i need something to compare with those, but are a bit brighter. something thats warm enough to play straight, and will also chrisp enough to slap well

    I like the D'Addario XL170's. I like them because they are bright in all the right places and solid in the rest. They last forever, even though I change them frequently because that's the way I am. I hear DR makes a nice string.
  4. I generally go with DRs, mainly because they're my favorite (currently) readily available brand. Although, my favorite 6 string set to date were Ken Smith strings, but I never see them in stores. I've have to special order them. Hmmmm.... Maybe I'll do just that....
