I really like the youtube videos I've heard with these strings. The threads on here are positive for the GHS Pressurewounds. I want to try them.
I've been using D'Addario XL165's (45, 65, 85, 105) FOREVER. I'm looking for a little more thump and a little less twang. I play with pretty high action so that I can dig in and not get too much clank from the fretboard (I'll admit, I do get into it sometimes and my attack is pretty hard). I play 90% fingerstyle, classic rock, modern rock, and a few rock-ish country tunes.
I play a MIM P-Bass (with Original '62 pickups). My question is, how is the tension of these strings compared to my XL165's?
I wish GHS published a tension guide.
Should I go with the ML7200 (44, 58, 80, 102) or the L7200 (40, 54, 76, 96)?
For you guys that use them, what's the tension like?
Jason says I shouldn't go any lighter than the M7200. I agree, but I am very concerned about the tension. I am not sure how long it might take me to adjust from say a 'rubber band' to a 'telephone pole'.
Thanks a bunch. I want to get these on order.
