well don't get super cheap strings, because they are most likely to be bad.


I've had good sounds with Ernie Ball slinkys. They are $20, so they are cheap and sound good. And you could call them a professional string too since they have an extensive list of players/endorsers on the back.


When they are new, they are very bright, but after a week or so, they mellow out a little and stay that way until they are dead or worn out.

I have to disagree here.

Status Graphite Hotwires everytime on any bass.

They don't dull easily as Ernie Balls.

These vary from £13.00 to £23.00 depending on what your after for what style of playing.

Elites are the other ones that you can try that sound great not matter what punishment they take.
