    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.

    dunno ive run into this problem b4. I play punk and i want my strings to be as bright as possible. The brighter the strings the faster they die. Ive heard good things about the new DR's though, i think they're called hi-beams. I have stingray with a maple neck now though so i can slap old dirty strings on it and still get alot of punch out of it.
