    Anyone know who makes some stiff strings besides Rotosound?

    I don't want to equate stiffness with thickness.

    That being said, I'm not sure how 'stiff' they are, but I use heavy GHS Bass Boomers roundwounds on my Jazz. (50-115)

    They are about the largest 4-string set I have found.

    Significant increase in string tension over the Fender mediums they replaced.

    They seem to provide lower action,a bigger sound, better feel for my right hand and more work for my left.

    They really changed the personality of the instrument for me, making it sound, and feel, larger and more accurate.

    I like them, however, many would not.

  3. You can get a lot of tension numbers from the STRINGS section of my spread sheet.

    Your musicians spreadsheet isn't D/L for me.
    But the bass players' section is pretty cool,thanks anyway.
