Does anybody out there know what strings Cliff Burton used? I used to use Ernie Ball nickels and got curious as to what strings he used. From all the strings I have tried at first I got close to his sound with a set of DR Sunbeams because of the low end growl and the smoothness on the highs. But then I heard rumors that Cliff used heavy Rotosound strings. So I got the heaviest set of Rotosound steel strings I could and the sound was almost exact to his. But not sure if he used steel, nickel, and i'm not even 100% sure what brand he actually did use. Does anybody out there know exactly what he used?
