Strings with Hi-Beam feel, but fatter tone?

    Ive used Hi-beams for a while, and i love the feel of them (100-45), but i want something that sounds fatter, less of that piano tone.
    Is it a roundcore that i need to create the similar feel?
    If so...what are the roundcore's that sound fatter?
  2. erhm... Fatbeams?!

    (They actually sound fatter, but they are not as flexible. You'll get used to it though. Go after the sound!)

  3. ...oh, and Sunbeams are good too. But still thinner sounding than FBs though.
