    I currently am using Dean Markley Blue Steels, and I have liked them for a while, but I want a change. Plus, these ones are dying on me. So, the question is... Does anyone know of a decent string brand that would be better/different than the blue steels? I am using a yamaha bass in a SWR LA15 amp. I want to get tone similar to flea. I have been looking at:

    Rotosound
    GHS
    DR
    etc..

    try the rotosounds, i have tried just about every string around and i keep going back to rotosounds. and they stay bright forever if you keep them clean
     
  3. DR Lo-Riders might work for you. A lot of people like the new ProSteels by d'addario.
