    Hi guys I have a squier vintage modified precision bass with daddario chrome strings. Im looking for the steve harris sound so I took the chromes but FOR ME are not good for what I want. So I asked some friends here in greece and they told me to buy some halfwounds because they have the flar feel and a more punchy roundwound sound. I play metal and punk and my favorite player STEVE HARRIS:) what do you thing?

    DR High beams are very slappy. Also, I recommend Low Riders if you still want more bottom end punch.
