Warwick Black Label vs Super Bright SS

    Is there anybody that used both on one bass (preferably both 45-105) and can compare them?

    Yeah, I know about tension, flexibility and feel.

    My actual problem is that once I got the Super Brights SS on my other bass, I found them kinda lacking some bass (bass boost on active bass fixes that though). I recall I felt the same thing with Rotos 66, but not with nickel Super Brights. But frankly IDK if that applies to Warwicks as well, had them on only one bass (and nothing except them).

    So, if anyone had used both Warwick Black Labels and Super Brights SS, could you chime in and tell me if those strings have same bass response or Super Brights are weaker? And any more differences worth mentioning?

    okay, let me talk with myself a bit.

    tried Marcus Miller's SS on the bass that normally had Black Labels, both are 105-45.

    MMs have notably less tension and also significantly quieter. tonally speaking, MMs have more low mids and maybe lows. fresh Black Labels are high-mid monsters (this fades away quickly, but even old Black Labels are more high-mid forward then MMs). fresh Black Labels also have more highs to them, but this quickly goes away, I'd say that several months old Black Labels are comparable to new MMs.
