 Gang, I am gonna' come clean up front and admit that when it bass guitars I am a little biased.  Same thing is happening with strings.  I am always trying other brands in an effort to....hmmm...well...I really don't know.  Anyway, just slapped a new set of Dunlop Super Bright med nickel's (.045-.105) on my VJ4.  It resisted...I guess it was able to smell the difference in the strings...I had to restrain it using a mild sedative and fur lined velcro straps.  Once installed it took me so long to get the intonation even close.  Also, the saddles are now more or less in line vs. the graduated angle you see on 99.9% of the Grand Ro's basses...oh the sleepless nights!  I know he doesn't make his own strings but I would guess he has a very tight manufacturing spec with who ever he uses.  I have owned and played a lot of his strings and they are always easy to dial right in.  Please understand this is just my opinion but it really should be yours too.  Anybody need a set of slight used Dunlop Super Bright's?

Hey Tim,

    Doing great, man! what about you?

Regarding strings...Sadowsky flats have been with me for the last five years. I have a set of Sadowsky Blue nickels in the drawer and I'm sometimes tempted to give them another chance, in fact I love how they sound but the flats are just so sweet.

Now I need to find the perfect string set on my double bass...and that's way too expensive. :^(
