Topic: Bass Guitar Strings?

For the bass players among us, I'm wondering what you like for strings?

My Thunderbird came with standard round-wound strings on it, but of course they're fairly noisy. I also like to use a felt ukele pick sometimes, and the rounds chew up them quickly. But ... I didn't want to lose the brightness rounds offer by switching to flat-wounds, so the guy at our local music store suggested these half-rounds by D'Addario:

What type of bass strings do you use / prefer, and why?

ACOUSTICS:  Cordoba D10-CE / LaPatrie "Concert" / Takamine GD30CE-12 / Norman ST30
ELECTRICS:  EP Les Paul Custom Pro / Gretsch Streamliner G2420T / EP Thunderbird Pro IV bass
AMPS:  Peavey "TF" VK212 / Traynor AM150T / Fender Rumble 150
EFFECTS: Boss ME-80 Multi-effects / Ibanez WD7 wah / Grand Orbiter V3 Phaser

Re: Bass Guitar Strings?

I have 2 sets in my drawer for when they're required. Ashton designed in Australia and a set called Johnny Brooke, who or where they are made is a mystery. I think I have rotosounds on at the moment.

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.
