    imho DR fatbeams are hard to beat. very bright E string!

    the fatbeams have nice mids, tight bass and the exact highs that let slapping cut through without being sizzly.

    it not just marketing that these are an integral part of marcus' sound.

    btw. i used 40-100, because i find lighter gauges better for slap. matter of preference though.

    After much searching I would have to say either Dean Markley SR2000 or DR Handmade Bootsy Collins Signature Series
