    I just threw a set of Nickel Lo Riders on my Modulus Q5. The 45-100 set sounds nice but the 130 B strings sounds dead. It has no definition or focus and is noticably different than the other 5 strings. Did I get too thick of string? Has anyone had this kind of problem with Nickel Lo Rider Bs? I am surprised that my Modulus B string sounds like my 34" G&L B string.

    I hate to say it but it could be a dead string. I have had that happen more with DR than any other string company. COntact them and they should replace the string or the entire set.
  3. Is your B is with taper?

    I about to install one of that for my first time to one of my 5er. I experience HiBeam Stainless and like it but I am a fan of Nickel so I will try that.

    No taper. I am pretty sure DR does not make a tapered nickel string.
