So, I'll admit it. I love that new string zing on a fresh set of roundwounds. I frequently use the tone knob on my Precision V to back off of the zing most of the times playing, but I'm a firm believer in the theory of "better to have and not need, than to need and not have". That said, I recently put some Rotosound 66s on my P5 (first string change on a brand new bass) and after roughly a week of 2 hour nightly practices, 3 sets at my church, and a week afterward with a more relaxed practice schedule, they have already completely lost that brightness. They are not quite to that super dull sound, but the "snap" seems to be gone and they feel like the life is already leaving them. Is this a common thing for Rotosounds in particular? I don't recall having this same problem in the past with Ernie Ball, DR, D'Addario or SIT strings. Is this just my imagination? Could anyone recommend strings that they feel retain that new string zing better? I'll probably go back to stainless DRs or D'Addario ProSteels, but wanted to research with the TB community before dropping my dimes.
