    What numbers? This is a joke right? If you've determined enough about your "style" to know that it's like Sheehan or Harris it would seem that you may have already determined what numbers work for you. Billy Sheehan uses a Rotosound Swing Bass roundwound set gauged 110 80 65 43 and Steve Harris uses a Rotosound Jazz Bass flatwound set gauged 110 90 70 50 I believe. Worlds apart in terms of feel and sound. Experiment and see what YOU prefer.

    Steve Harris has his own RotoSound model.. the SH77s

    Flatwounds

    long scale

    .050 - .075 - .095 - .110

    They seem to be in the $28-35 USD range.. up here in Canada they try and rip you off and charge $65 CDN for ONE set.. I just ordered 2 sets for that...
