    I have DR Sunbeams on my bass right now and the tension is way too floppy. What do you think are the nickel-wounds that have the tightest tension are?

  2. Bass Player had a review of a lot of bass strings back in 1996. Four and Five string sets. Maybe you can still order a copy. They list tension (not in lbs) but you can compare brands.

    I don't have the issue with me (at work) to answer your question.
  3. D'Addario XL looks like the highest tension. GHS is right behind them.
