basically i'm looking for quite bright strings, but i need them to last a long time, thats the main factor really. i really liked rotosound swing bass steel but they seemed to go dead quite quickly and they dragged quite alot on my fingers. price isnt a major factor but i dont want to spend too much. they must be worth it for the price though. anyone got any ideas? the reason i ask is i dont have that much money to go round buying loads of different strings to try out, so i'd like to try and keep the ammount of choice down to a minimum. thanks.
