TI Acousticore or Jazz Flats for fretless acoustic
Hi all Bass Talkers,
I am a new member trying to find low tension strings for my long scale Fylde fretless A/B as the action has become high (11 mm at octave) over the nine years I have had it and although I intend to adjust the bridge as much as possible, a lighter tension will be easier.
In the past I have had problems with round wound strings damaging fretless finger boards so am curious about the TI strings.
Can anyone give me their opinion on how the tension and sound compares between the Acousticore and Jazz Flats, I play without a plectrum for a full warm tone ( for an early dub reggae kind of feel).
Also, my bass has a 36" scale nut to bridge, will the TI 34" be long enough in both models? (I have seen a spec sheet for TI EB34 strings giving a wound length of over 36").
Here's hoping you can help,
I can't give you a comparison between the two types, but I can tell the Jazz Flats are fantastic on my old Sigma fretless A/B. The tone is perfect, the tension is perfect. If they are long enough, you want them on your bass. I haven't tried the Acousticores, but I can't see how they could be any better than the Jazz Flats.
I use the JF on my 5-string fretless ABG. Great feel and sound. Never tried the other type.
