Best all around Bass Strings?

Nickel Roundwound strings are the most popular for all around use, from hip-hop to funk slap as well as rock bass and other musical genres. The D'Addario EXL170 tend to be the most popular string for bassists. If you are serious about funk slap, then try the DR Bootzillas featuring Bootsy Collins right on the package. This guy is the sole creator of the slap sound and took bass to the stratosphere with the band Parliment Funkadelic, which is the most sampled band of all time and the precursor to hip-hop as we know it. Remember that strings become dull over time, since your dead skin collects on them. Grab a can of Finger Ease and spray your strings regularly. It will extend their life and keep them sounding fresh.
