  1. Out of the choices given, which strings do you think are tighter at the same gauge?
     
  2. i've been using

    Snarling dogs roundwound bass strings by Charlie Stringer

    for 3 years now and they have pretty good tension imho.

    A couple I've tried...GHS Precision Flatwounds and
    the LaBella James Jamerson set. I think with the
    LaBellas, the gauges ARE the core diameter - the
    wrap is maybe an afterthought? :p
