I use the AustinBuddy bass presets so I asked him what strings Scott Nelson who helped him tune the presets uses. It was GHS Bass Boomers. I got them and like the sound. They killed my fingers when they were brand new
No clue what’s on it now, I wanna say 45-110? I can’t remember. It’s a lighter/standard gauge I threw on because I was tracking a song in standard tuning. Normally I keep that 4-string in CGCG and used a custom gauge set from String Joy to do so, but I’ll have to look up the gauges, I ordered a couple packs 2 years ago but can’t for the life of me remember what they are. I want to say the low E is like a 115 or something and worked PERFECTLY in C.
I had an Ibanez SR305 years back and sold it. It wasn't remarkable. Bass player in the band
I play with has a Schecter Custom 5 string, plays great and sounds really good with active
pups and active EQ. Not sure what exact model it is. Nice bass, though.
I suspect a 5 string is a bridge I won't cross for a long time. I can't see myself venturing into A
like @Iron1 does.
I have a set of D'Addarrios on my EXB445 and whatever Solar sends on their basses on my AB2.4. I'm the guy that won't buy new ones, just take the old ones and boil them, cause bright bass tone is not my thing.
