    Hi I was wondering what strings would be good for getting a good high end that isn't too thin sounding? :bassist: Just for a 4 string

    Any new strings will probably work for you. Steel strings are especially bright.
  3. GHS Super Steels. They're bright and slick.

    Or even go a step up with the Contact Core Super Steels. They have a little more brightness/clarity than just our standard (which are still quite bright).
