Ernie Ball 5-String Slinky .040-.125
If you own a 5-String stingray and use roundwounds or if you just own a 5-String and slap alot these are the strings for you. I put a set on my Spector Legend 5 and even with the low end EMG pickups it has an amazing slap tone with these strings. These strings will stay bright for a very very long time. Also, I agree completly with DB. The sound of these strings on a stingray is priceless. OVERALL fantastic string depending on what your using it for.

Ernie Ball 5 string Bass Slinkys
Owning a stock 5 string Ernie Ball Music Man Sting Ray, I have found that using the stock set that came on the bass from the factory, these strings, seem to work the best. After trying several different brands, including ones I used to swear by when I toured and played 4-5 nights a week, I could not find any other strings that seemed to stay bright, and clean as the Ernie Balls. The Sting Ray is finicky in the way that you can tell immediately the moment the strings go dead. Tuning the active electronics helps a bit, but nothing comes close to having bright sounding strings. The EB's maintained a bright tone even after several nights playing out and letting my daughter use my bass for her gigs too. Bass strings are an investment for most musicians, not something we can usually afford to change weekly like guitar players. The EB's work for me, and my bass likes them too.
