    Can anyone tell me what the softest, thinnest loosest steel strings are?

    I love my guts on the one bass, but on the other bass...I have the Heliocores...I am looking something with extra low tension that is real easy on the fingers. Going from my guts to the steels is like going from flannel to burlap, if you get my meaning.

    The Labella 7710's (nylon wrapped) are easy on the fingers. I really enjoy these strings.

    Almost any solo-tuning steel string, tuned at orchestra pitch.
    Labella Supernils (nylon core).
