First Flats And ???
Hoping to get some input here, have been reading quite a bit.
Bass is a Carvin SB5000 (bolt on neck Jazz). I want to try out flats on this bass, I'm not a fan of roundwound strings. My other basses have either tapes or grounds on them.
The SB came with Labellas in 40-60-80-100-128.
Because I did not want to file the nut, I decided to stay in a similar gauge, so I ordered D'Addario Chromes in 45-65-80-100-132 (listed as "light").
Now, never having used flats before, and reading what I've been reading, should I be concerned about the excess tension that the flats will create? Or should I be okay with just tweaking the truss rod if needed?
Thanks in advance for the help.
