    I just purchased a used atk and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what kind of strings to try to complement my new purchase. Thanks in advance for responding.
  2. Dean Markley SR2000's should go very well on your ATK. They are like your bass, tight, fat, snarling and loud! Heh heh.

    I'm looking into strings for my ATK too, currently has D'Addarios on it but they're too bright for me. Considering DR lo-riders, black beauties or sunbeams to mellow it out a tad.
  4. I always liked Ernie Ball slinkies on my old ATK700.

    I love rocking Chromes on my ATK700 :)

    I have an ATK750KA and have used Elixer, DR Highbeams, DR Hellborg signatures, and Rotosound flats. I haven't found a string I don't like on the bass. I favor different pickup selections with different strings and might tweak the eq a little different sometimes but with any string you should be able to find a tone that fits your style of playing. Congrats on the new bass, hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine.
