    I'm using D'Addario Slowounds or GHS Bass Boomers with my Music Man Stingray 5 and I'm quite satisfied.
    Just out of curiosity: What else should I try to get a beefy, ballsy sound?
    BTW: Thomastik-Infelds come frome the place where I live: Vienna, Austria. Maybe I should give them a try...

    Thanks in advance,
    Matthias

  2. Why thank you!




    I tried a bunch of different brands, including my old staple DR's, and found that I got the best sound (yes, beefy!) with the originals, Ernie Ball Slinkys.
