Coming up for a string change on Orion 4. For more years than I care to remember I have used Elites Stainless 40 - 100 happily. Just testing the water and other opinions as out of touch with what is about. Requirements are 40 - 100 (fingers getting older and one weaker after a finger break years ago)and not nickel (skin alergy). Playing fingerstyle, boogie,jazz,country,pop not slap and hardly any soloing stuff. Genz Streamliner 900 and Berg cabs. All thoughts welcome. Glynn

Hello Glynn,

I have been using Dean Markley 2670 XL 40-95 "Blue Steel " strings for my round wounds for quite a long time. I enjoy the fact that they age very gracefully from an aspect of intonation. I like them better then some others that I have tried. They also work fine with the Alembic medium scale bass's . I play finger style as well in an eclectic variety of styles.

I like DR Fatbeams and their lite set is 40 - 100
