hi im a new member this is my first post.i was wondering about my next string purchase.i do alot of slaping and some fingerstyle and i wouldnt touch a pick with a ten foot pole. im looking for a nice brite sound with good punch but also need good bass to. right now im playing with Ernie Ball 45-130 i think. but they seem to go dead too quick does anyone have any sugestions on what to buy. thank you for your time. p.s. i play a spector Q5(not the neck through)through a ampeg b-15 100 watt combo.
