    I presently use DR Lo-Riders Nickel on my Stingray bass. I've been hearing a bit about S.I.T. strings and I'd like to give them a try (pretty good strings at a right price). However, I don't know which ones might be better for me...Powerwound or Rock Brights. I play rock/metal in the likes of Godsmack, Disturbed, Staind, etc....mostly in tuned down to dropped D. Any suggestions on which strings might be better to sample?

    well, i used to play metal...and back then the stainless steel (doesn't matter what brand) kind
    were better for the sound i was looking for (more treble) now i play more funk - groove, so
    i moved to nickel, and since then i can't touch stainless steel...
    so check out which of them is the stainless steel.:cool:

    Powerwounds and Rock Brights are both nickel and both very reasonably priced. Powerwounds are described by SIT as a good "all-application" string while Rock Brights are described as "the ultimate bright nickel string."

    Which ever you decide, the strings forum sponsor carries them. ;)
