I use what ever heavy gauge flat wounds I can find.Mostly because I like a cleaner sound.

I know, I know, so slow around here that it's come to this! Just curious about gauge, however, not necessarily brand. I recently went with D'Addario EXL157's baritone strings (14 - 18 - 26w - 44 - 56 - 68) for my Morrell Pro. I'm thinking the 68 is a little heavy. I may kick the 56 into the 6th position and find a slightly lighter 5th in my BBOS. Big box of strings, that is.  I usually use open E or D by the way.

I tried to find the heaviest available and went with the baritone strings. Maybe a little too heavy on the low end, however.
