I haven’t mentioned it lately but my Mike D’Antonio MDB5 signature bass is shipping just around the corner. This is the bass I ordered in case my Surveyor never showed, which it hasn’t.
Anyway, I have a set of DiMarzio pickups for it which shipped today, a Sixties P for the neck and Area J for the bridge.
Now for a set of strings. I had planned to try LaBella Low Tension Flats, but my life has changed since I started with DiMarzio.
So my short list is staying with the LTF, or going with Rotosound 77 Monel Flats. I have these on my Charvel and really like the feel and mid/high tones.
I am considering the Billy Sheehan’s or Steve Harris. I am concerned with the high tension of a .110 E string but I thought I would throw it out there and see what you think
The bass comes tuned in Drop C so the nut is all set for a heavier gauge. But Drop C too low for this wombat
