    Probably uses an old set of his favorite strings. On the SRV albums that I have heard it was the typical boomy, blues bass sound. I know several blues bassists and they never change their strings unless one breaks. They try for a thumpy, huge bottom sound and old strings are the ticket for that sound.

    Don't know his exact brand though sorry.

    I've read several magazine articles/interviews where he said that he uses D'Addario XL's.
