    Hi all,

    I need some guidance.

    What strings should I use for my Yamaha TRBII-6?

    I play mainly rock and funk (slap/pop).
    Any recommendations or experience is welcome.

    Thanks Lars

    try ken smith nickel, dean markley nickel steel, sit are cool also.

    although everybody hates dean markley i have their nickel steel strings and they still sound great after 4 months of high humidty !!

    Thanks for the advice,

    Maybe I have a problem with availability here in Denmark. I haven't seen those strings anywhere but I will keep looking.

    So nickel is the way to go?

    :) yeah i know what you are talking about...
    u can try bassguitarstrings.us i had great service from them. they have a large selection now, so maybe they will be good for you.

    i say go with the dean markley nickels or SIT nickel i think you will like them.

    and yeah...nickel is the best in my opinion.

    Hi..

    Cool at se endnu en dansker:D Vi er ved at være et par stykker herinde:) ..

    I've once owned a Yamaha TRB6 and I used DR Hi-beams. They sound GREAT with that bass, very full and "rocky" sound..
    My advice try some DR's:bassist:
