OK. I'm going to try some DR's on my Ibanez SR506, go back to tuning B-C (well, actually going half step down). I keep hearing good things, so DR's will be on the chopping block. Fatbeams, HiBeams, SunBeams, LoRiders (SS & Nickel)... I don't know what to choose! I tried D'addario ProSteels. They were great for slap, nice mid-scoop, but lacked a lot of body and punch IMO. Nickel XL's had a great sound for about 2 weeks, then they died and they've gotten pretty bleh. I'd like something that lasts longer before it craps the bed on me. I'm so spoiled by the Elixirs that came on the bass originally, but I don't have the cash to drop on another set. I'm looking at all of their .030 - .130 sets.
