I own one bass (Lakland Joe Osborn vintage jazz style), but I can't decide on whether to stay with flats or rounds. With both my bands (one is rock with soul influence and the other chicago blues) I love using flats. They sound and play great for both bands. But when I practice at home I want to play some slap style stuff and prefer rounds for the their tone in general. I use D'Addario Chromes and DR Fat Beams both in similar gauges. When I first changed over from Fat Beams to Chromes, the bass really didn't need a truss rod adjustment. Thus, is it okay to frequently go back and forth between string types? By frequently I mean once or twice a week. I'd love to know if others do this as well.
Please no "buy a second bass" responses. As if that hasn't crossed my mind.
