Softer Rotosound Swing Bass 66's? Jun 2, 1. Nov 7, Greater Toronto Area, Canada. I'm looking for a light gauge stainless steel, maybe hexcore string to put on my Warwick Rockbass that accentuates the midrange and the Warwick's growly nature. The growliest string award always seems to go to Rotosound Swing Bass 66's, but every time I read about these strings, I also read about how they chew up the frets.
I heard that DR's Lo Riders were pretty growly. Then I stumbled onto Ed Freidland reviewing the different DR stringsand Wilderness - The Blood Divine - Awaken seems like the nickel Mauro Valente - Top Sigrid EP have a bit more mids than the stainless steels, but I'm worried they aren't going to last long enough for my tastes, and my hands can sweat pretty badly in the summer.
The DR Bootzillas got my attention, but they only seem to come in a medium set. Is there another string that's softer than the Rotosound on the frets, but just as aggressive on the ears? Jun 2, 2. And everyone has a different opinion of growl. I'm thinking of something like this. Or in a bass context, this around the mark. Jun 2, 3. Sep 14, Pennsylvania. DR HiBeams. I used Rotos for years but never liked the rough texture. I found HiBeams and havent looked back. They last a long long time too.
Love them. Jun 2, For Ol Times Sake - Elvis Presley - Raised On Rock / For Ol Times Sake. Aug 11, Fern Park, Florida. The SS Lo-Riders have a fantastic midrange, and are plenty aggressive. Of DR strings, they are the closest in construction to Rotos.
See the other Lo-Rider thread floating around - I posted some clips, and my set are 4 years old. Jun 2, 5. Mar 27, Everything in this world wears out eventually I use Rotos on Telefono Roto (Autonomous Bass Heads Phone Is Broke Remix) - Autonomous Bass Heads - Shock The Plane Rick because that's the sound I want.
I've had it refretted once, and a proper job on a bound and finished fretboard Is Not Cheap. But that's just the cost of playing.
So one approach is to play the strings that sound best, and every gig you put a dollar or two in a jar. You won't miss it at the time, but when the frets are worn out you'll have money for a nice fret job.
And your bass will sound the way you like it! Jun 2, 6. Apr 9, Orlando. Warwick's own steel strings are pretty great, and they're the softest I've encountered. Pretty sure they've done that on purpose, since their brass frets would be especially susceptible to wear. Jun 2, 7. Jun 2, 8. Oct 13, Learn lighter fretting and use rotosound swing 66 steel.
Its main string Ive used Telefono Roto (Autonomous Bass Heads Phone Is Broke Remix) - Autonomous Bass Heads - Shock The Plane the 70's. Pick nickel swing 66 if you want lighter wear on frets and can be comfy with the warmer tone of the nickels. Jun 2, 9. Apr 1, New York, NY. Jun 3, Nov 14, Narvik, Norway.
