    My wife just picked up a Streamer LX 5 Broadneck, for my 40th B-Day. God I love this woman!

    Anyway, what strings would everyone recommend for the LX?

    I used to own a Thumb 5 and I needed to use taperwound strings for the B & E. Is the bridge on the Streamer LX similar?

    I am looking for a tight feel on the B-string with a crisp punchy attack.

    I believe the Streamer is a 34" scale.

    Thanks for your responses.
     
  2. Check out the Thomastik Pwer bass series, they sound wonderful on my 5er.

    You can get them online HERE

    The lowest price's on the Net!

    Hi Treena,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I think I want a larger gauge B than what is currently offered in the TIs.

    IMHO, DR's are the best strings for warwicks. i've tried a bunch, and keep coming back to the stainless lo-riders for fretted and hi-beams for fretless.

    All Warwick Bridges are the same.

    Yes, the B string probably will need to be tapered.

    Especially if
    "larger gauge B than what is currently offered in the TIs."


    Personally, I don't care what gauge to TI's are.
    Their tone is wonderful.

    Try Warwick Black Label Regulars':
    135 tapered B string.

    I picked up a pack of Labella Super Steps, so I'll see how they go. They were $15.00 at Sam Ash and have an exposed core on the B & E string.

    I will post a review once I get them on.

    Thanks for all the previous posts. I have always used DR High Beams on my 4 strings, but I am looking for something different.
