Thomastik Jazz Flats on my P-Bass.
Wanted more of a 'upright' sound for when I play my P, so I invested in some Thomastik strings, raised the action on my strings, and put a sponge under the strings at the bridge. I really dig the tone. I know, I know, you can't get an upright sound out of a fretted electric, but I got something that sounds way different than my J-bass. This track is very monotonous and boring, but wanted to quickly throw something down for others to hear and get your opinion. I played over a DR-5, Jazz track 11, with the bass muted. My volume is a little high, but I wanted to hear how they sound. This is my first time posting a recording, so it's possible that I'll do it wrong and you won't hear anything. If so, my apologies. If not, what do you think of the tone?
First off, thanks for posting this. The link for the audio works just fine.
I currently don't own a P or a set of TI's; however, these two are on top of my GAS list.
Nice playing, by the way, and I do dig the "woody" tone!
TI's are very expensive, so hopefully others will be able to hear this and determine if the tone is what they are looking for and worth the price.
Expensive? Maybe at the outset, but I would consider it a great value in the long run considering how long they can last.
That was GREAT! Great sound and nice playing. Fretted or fretless??
TIs are my very favorite string - I am slowly adding them to one bass after another.
For a blues band I play with, not having the TIs, I put a set of LaBella tapewounds on one of my Fury basses, and it is quite nice also, and got good comments from the band.
I love Jazz Flats, my main fretless has been wearing them for upwards of ten years now (currently on second set).
They last forever. Have a set on my fretless P-Bass for 7 years.
They still sound great.
Average that out over 7 years, they are not expensive at all.
Best strings I've ever used.
TI Jazz Flats are a great deal - takes them forever to really go dead, so the price can be spread farther than for other strings. I love the sound - dynamics are very responsive to touch. The only reason I don't use them all the time is that after a while, I start to miss a little higher-tension feel. So I switch off to GHS, LaBella, Pyramid or Fender till I'm ready to go back to TI...
