I started using a Höfner CT 500/7 Verythin bass lately and LOVE it to death!
I have roundwounds on it as I'm a fingerplucker (ie: no pick) and I don't want it to sound muddy down low on the E string.
The problem that I'm having is that I'm getting alot of finger noise on the A, D, and G strings closer to the headstock.
Do I just need to work on my technique, or should I consider flat or tapewound strings?
If I do go with flats / tapes, how will that sound not playing w/ a pick? Would it just be too muddy / thumpy overall??
I play through a Fender Bassman TV 10 and 15 (no horn) and also through an Ampeg Portaflex PF350 w/ 210 cab (w/ horn)
