So i have been jamming with shitty GHS strings on my bass because they were the only ones I could find in town that were heavier than 45-105 for tuning down to C for playing Black Sabbath, Nightwish, and various other choice metal. I got sort of used to how the sounded. this morning I decided to try out these new DR High Beam Marcus Millers, I read they were fatter sounding than the regular High beams. I don't know if they are so awesome, or I was so used to hearing shit strings, but man, they sound nice. They are really roundwound and raw feeling, almost like the factory warwick strings which I liked so much but can't find anywhere but online.
