    Hello Guys and girls...

    Been looking for some advice on my next sets of strings...

    I do like the growl I get from some strings in the BEA strings. In that area I like rotosounds (apart from the fact that they last for a week or so...)

    But at the same time I get that growl I like from the lower register strings, the higher register ones sound excessively bright.

    I wonder if you guys could suggest me a set of 6-strings that could better accomplish the goal of being deep and growl in the BEA and also be smooth and mellower in DGC.

    I know it's kinda wonderland wish, but let me know if you can help me come close to what I want...

    Keeping in mind that my bass is a 34" and very prone to floppy B.

    Heard they are a bit on the floppy side of the force...

    Can you confirm that?

    I've found the balanced set takes care of the issues that you have in regard to the DGC strings. They're a lot closer in tone across the board. Also, the B string is great.

    you could take the strings that you find to bright and rub them in your palm to deaden them slightly.
    Or, you could play after eating fried chicken. Be imaginitive! :)
