Got a question for the lord and savior for all metal bass players: David Ellefson
Back in the KIMB era David played with his fingers (I'm a finger style player as well) and I really enjoy playing that stuff, what brand of strings did Mr Ellefson use back then (if he played with fingers or pick) I tried a lot of strings before and attempting to play with pick and fingers.
I found out that DRs are too heavy for finger play and Rotosound not durable enough for pick.
So would be awesome to know what brand David used to play.
David used Rotosound Swing Bass strings during that period. He initially played with fingers when Megadeth was formed but he moved over to a pick full time by the time the band was into the KIMB era.
