        I had a Jazz, back about 40 years ago. No idea what strings I had on it.

      D'addario EXL165. I think I have EXPs on it right now, which are the coated version, due to a screwup ordering a set for my TRB. Either way, they've lasted the longest of any nickel string I've tried, though they've pretty much lost all their high-end bite and need a change. The only strings that have been on one of my basses longer is a set of Dean Markley Blue Steels I have on my BB404 J-clone, and that's primarily because it's the neglected stepchild of my collection. It's a wonderful player and I loan it out when a new bassist in my praise team needs an axe to learn on, but I hardly play it myself anymore compared to my TRB or Fender MIM Jazz.

        Dean Markley Helical nickels.  Tried them on a whim and loved them.
