So there's a bit of a story to go with my question: Today, my G string broke (it's always the string with the funny name). I remembered that when I got my bass - which I got second hand - it came with an extra pack of strings, so I found that pack, but as it turns out, it has all of the strings except for the G string. And I noticed that the strings in the pack and the one that broke all had the same red thing on the end, so I'm pretty sure the one that broke came from that pack! Anyway, before it broke, I noticed that I preferred the sound of the G string over the D string, especially when popping. It seemed to have a much brighter sound. I looked at the packet and it says BRIGHT, so that's obviously why. The strings are D'Addario XL Nickel Wound Medium Guage EXL160. And I liked the sound of that string that broke, so I would like to get some more like these. Does anyone have any recommendations? They don't have to be the same, just similar sounding.
