    I have a fender squier jazz, and I freakin' love that bright, zingy, growly tone I can get out of it. I've been using d'addario nickel rounds for a while and they seem to work pretty well- but I'm looking for something with just a little more brightness. Can anyone reccomend me some real zingy bright roundwounds?

    Do some searching man, there's lots of stuff. If zangy twangy growly tone is what you want though, DR Stainless Hi Beams are a good choice.

    Ok, I'll try out some DR's. I hear T.I.'s are good, any word on those bad boys?
