    I've been using rotosound swingbass strings on my Maverick 5 string.

    Thing is
    they are EATING my frets!
    bass is only a year old and theyre really pretty scratched
    so im looking for a new set of strings that'll be much kinder to them

    thing is, im a rather broke uni student! so cost effectiveness is a key issue!

    any ideas for a 5 string, roundwound set for minimum dough?

    help much appreciated

    they're nickle wrapped steel.

    IMO - not expensive, last long, sound great (brite) and don't eat your frets.
