My DR Stainless steel Lo-riders have been on since about June, and I think I want something new. They're not as dead as Ernie Balls get, but I need something different. First off all, I want less finger noise. I think Nickles will do that. I like the feel of the Lo Riders tension wise, but they are a little rough on the left hand, they shred up my skin. Second, I want something thats not too bright. Bright enough for punk and funk, but not bright so that I get a clanky clacky sound (shudder). what do you think would be good for me? Basically, to sum it up, I'm in the market for some nickle roundwounds. One more question, where can I get strings cheap online? I heard that one place never sent orders, so I would like to know what that is so i never order from there.
