Are Roto Flats supposed to be low volume and D sound older?
I just bought some Roto Jazz Flats to give them a try. I noticed when I put them on my 58 Pbass the volume went down by as much as a 1/4 - 1/3rd of what it was with TI flats. I really noticed it when at practice. I have never had to turn my amp up like that before. It that typical for Rotos?
They are stiffer than most flats for that gauge (100) and don't know if that is the reason or not. Never ran into this before.
Also noticed that all the strings sound new and have some zing, except the D. It sounds nice and thumpy but doesn't have the new sound like the others.
