Balanced tension strings
I have 2 basses, one has 45-65-86-105 roundwounds(blacktop jazz bass) the other has 77 flats same size(squier standard jazz). I want to go back to rounds on the squier, sound of flats not mixing well with other instruments, and high tension turning me off of wanting to play it. Am looking at possibly putting a lighter set of strings, something kind of bright, maybe a set of balanced tension strings. How is the sound from these type of strings? Is the sound balanced as well, or is there a sacrifice in sound to achieve balanced tension? Changing more for the sound than the tension, but want less tension on squier bass than on blacktop. More interested in sound than tension, but would be nice to have both!!
