I just bought a Carvin LB75 and I need new strings. The Carvin strings that are on it don't suit me. This is my first set of 5'er strings and I need some advice. I like a light gauge string (easy on the hands) with a smooth top end. I don't like really bright, coarse sounding strings. On my Jazz bass I was using Dean Markley Blue Steel strings. I used the light gauge tapered strings and they seemed to have a really tame top. They sounded bright and new but not clanky and loud. Does that make any sense? Any recommendations? I'm going to get Dean Markley strings again unless I hear some other suggestions. Thanks.
