Pro Steels
Have used these strings for years. Started with a recommendation from Michael Manring. Bassy and bright. You can get harmonics ringing out so clear. They are rougher than nickel strings, but that just means you can play more to get tougher skin!

These strings last longer (and stay brighter) than any other string I've used or tried--and I've used many, many different strings over the years. They have a great "growl" and slightly "scooped" sound to them. They are bright, but not overly harsh. Great all around string.

Pro Steels EPS165
I too used to use Rotosound strings, until I bought some counterfeit strings. Tried the ProSteels, and have been using them for years and years. I try a different set now and then, on another bass player's recommendation, but always go back. I use them on my G&L2000, Spector, and Alembic. They just have the greatest sustain and a kind of roar to them. They seem to last longer than anything I've tried. I've never noticed any "roughness" to them...they feel great. Give them a try!

I switched from using roto swing basses to these for my SS roundwound needs and never looked back.

One of the worst strings I have tried.
These have a pitiful rough feel to them, and I can't smooth them up with string lubricant even! I have also noticed that on all D'Addario bass strings, the E string goes dead quickly.
But sound-wise, they are very bright. For a while.

"ProSteels are D'Addario's brightest and most magnetic bass strings. A specialized alloy delivers harmonically rich, brilliant high-end coupled with deep, tight lows that work in tandem to create the "piano-like" tone stainless steel players crave."
