    Hey guys...
    I play a 5 string Warwick Streamer Standard. I have an issue... I use Ernie Ball Super Slinky's most of the time, and i find that my E and A strings are far louder than my D and G, which just sound thin. Any suggestions? Should I go to a heavier string guage, or try a different brand? I just want to even my sound out a little, try and get even volume from all the strings.
  2. You could try the Power Slinkys; these are a 55 75 90 110 130 set I believe. This would make the D and G louder and tighter than before. But the high end on these is too tense IMO (especially the 75 gauge D string).

    I like the tension to be EQUAL across the string range, which is why I am getting 45, 65 , 85, 110 gauge Foderas. (A Fodera 105 is as tense as many brands' 110's I've heard, and I love a tense E and A.)
