    Switched to dr neons from rotosound swing66 for the extended bass articulation they had. Used em for a good year. Had issues with some strings out of box and string break. Tried previous alt strings dean markley blue steel which while nice could never replace rotos for main strings to me. Tried daddario xl nickel. Thats the ticket. Great compramise between the dr neons and rotos for sound wants to me. Using the guitar version for my guitars to for improved sound compared to roto pinks, dr titefits, and dean blue steel as well. The price for daddario xl nickels is another plus, but sound is main thing.

    Anyone else switch to another brand after having a main string brand for many yrs then finding another you liked better but which had issues of some sort resulting in finding a diff brand for new main choice?
