i favour the elixir nanowebs. i find the tone nice and balanced and they feel really smooth to the touch with their nanoweb coating. their long life is a real plus. Sure they are more expensive than other strings but in my view it is money well spent
I am not a fan of any coated string as most of them are not conductive and defeat the usefulness of the string ground running under the bridge. I have encountered many people complaining of hum problems and the issues were all due to the coated strings.
that is an interesting point. Thankfully my bass remains as quiet as a mouse with Elixirs, which is just as well as I have just purchased 10 packs!
Any players out there having hum problems with Elixirs
