  2. I just bought a new set of R Cocco tapered strings for my 5 string. So far they are very good (better than the Shadowsky strings I had before, they really s**ked).

    Hmm..you will probably get many different answers on this one.
    I´ve tried numerous brands, DR Low Rider, Blue Steel, GHS boomers, Fender Superbass etc. I always seem to go back to the Fenders. It´s just something in those strings that "does" for me.

    W/best regards,

    Check with Herm (strings moderator). He has some good prices, if he has any left.
