I second Ewan’s comments, bloody love Newtone’s nickel strings. Think mine are hex core too :)

All quiet on the western front. I've been using nothing but Fat Beams for the last year so haven't been interested in trying out new strings. Just purchased another two packs so that will be at least another year before I try something else... if I ever try something else!

A new bass means new strings to try out - Sandberg Steels review up! I've just purchased some Smith Rock Masters so am interested to see how the two compare although I think there will be very few differences.

Before lockdown combined with a strained back put my bass playing on hold I had settled with Dunlop flats on my Fender Jazz and Lakland P/J (that gets used almost exclusively as a P bass). They feel great, have high tension and more zing than any flat I've played but they are still flats.

I've been wanting to try those flats for a while... but I never use flats any more! They're supposed to be one of the most flexible hexcore flats out there.
