Nickel on steel, extra bright, unsilked so therefore less expensive than the RS series.

I play bass for a Rush tribute band, and though I know Geddy's go-to strings are the RS66LD stainless steel strings for $28.50, but I found them to be a bit rough on my fingers when they are brand new. It felt like there was a sticky film on the strings that eventually wore off after using them for a few weeks. Stainless-steel is known to be a bit tougher on fingers, and though Rotosound makes a nickel-wound version of the RS66LDs, I did a bit more research and found the Roto Bass RB45 Nickel-wound strings for $23.99. They are much easier on the fingers than the stainless-steel strings, but still produce a nice bright tone very similar to the Rotosounds that works great for playing Rush, and they are $4.51 cheaper. Do your fingers and your wallet a favour, and try a set of RB45s. They will both thank-you for it!
