    I'm looking for some strings that'll last me a good while in the $20 range. Any reccomendations?
     
  2. ERNIE BALL SLINKEY (REGULAR)!... well they are like $16-$20 depends on when and where you get them, but good enough
     
  3. I use a GHS Bassics set that is probably 20 dollors or so if you are able to find them, they aren't terribly popular so I usually have to special order them. They last me anywhere from 6 months to several years, depending on the bass.

    I paid around $19 for my D'Addario Slowounds (www.sheetmusicplus.com). Even, warm and consistent tone, not too bright, good feel. I like them. Why don't you try a set? :)

    I pay 20$ for my Pyramid Pyrasound strings, but I heard they're much more expensive in the U.S.
