    I assume PDN basses come with stock slinky strings (not cobalts)? I haven't used slinky's in years, and they sound really good, but when i took them off to wonderwipe the fretboard, all of them were twisted, and I think it screwed with the E an B a little bit. If i'm gonna replace them id like to maybe try the cobalt rounds (have cobalt flats on my jazz and love them!) does anyone know if the tension is the same between cobalt rounds and slinky rounds?

    - Amps: Mesa D-800+; G-K MB800 and MB500; Genzler Magellan 350
    - Cabs: Two Barefaced Big Baby 2's; Two Hartke HyDrive HD210's; Barefaced One10
    - A few "other" basses, all very nice but none threaten my Stingray's position as my #1

    Yeah, I know I suck, but at least I suck a little less than I sucked yesterday.

    Yeah they seem similar tension to me. That said I have just put a set of pink pack Slinky rounds on my SR5, 125 to 40. All I can say is wow!! They really suit my playing and my natural/maple SR5.
