I think try every string, sound is subjective so find what you like then experiment. In my experience id never go back to warwick strings as I think there are better options. I'm currently loving exposed core strings, i am currently using the F bass ones. I always like to try new strings as I'm always looking for the next best thing. The warwicks to me just sound a bit dull and dead.

So Hi Beams are not as scooped?
Hi Beams are not scooped at all, just good, solid, in your face strings. If you are not sure what to buy, perhaps DR is the less risky choice.
EMP are harsh(ish) in the fingers, scooped, and last longer than hi beams. I prefer 0.40 EMP's over 45. They are more like hybrid sets, G and D are thin, AEB are thick, so the 45 EMP have 135' B string, and to me they sound a bit dull.
But it really is a matter of personal taste. There are so many variables like how you play, where you pick, how hard you play, EQ, effects, so it is hard to predict the right strings for you.

Have been playing Warwick Black Labels since 1993 and always liked their modest sound character. Unfortunately the .175 F# string is extremely overpriced (EUR 55,-) which forces me to switch to another brand.

One String for 55€ ? Wow that is really expensive.
I thought you as an endorser would get the strings for free? :eek:
I heard quite good things about Pyramid. There you can put a custom string set together. Check them out ;)

They don't offer string endorsements, but since Black Labels are relatively low priced it was never a big deal to buy them. Years ago I tried a couple of .175 Pyramids and didn't like the articulation. Galli and Kalium seem to be the best alternatives for sub-low strings.

Agree with Galli, even their regular strings are very nice to play.
