  1. yeah i am teying to find some string to buy for christmas. so please tell me.
  2. I had a set of Hi-Beams on my Stingray and liked them a lot. They're a nicely-balanced set that I feel are similar to Dean Markley Blue Steels, another very good string.

    About two months ago I finally tried a set of Lo-Riders, and all I can say is WOW! :bassist:

    They have a stiffer feel compared to the Hi-Beams, which I love, and seem to have a more focused low end, and a slightly less trebly top. A more articulate-sounding string to me. They are perfect for finger-style playing, especially for those who like to dig in. I don't slap, so I don't know how they'd be for that.

    They are now my favorite strings by far. ;)

    Depends what kind of gear you use and what kind of sound you are looking for. I have black beauties on my Tbird for a great fingerstyle classic rock sound...and they match perfectly. I have
    Hi beams on my Peavey US Millenium for a more "hi fi" tone, and
    have Marcus Miller High beams on my Lakland Darryl Jones, for a thick but bright jazz bass tone.
