Need your advice, TBers.
I have a 1950s German ply that is currently being worked on. My repairman is suggesting Spirocore Weichs, which are great, but I'm thinking Velvets.
I had a set of Animas years ago. Truly fine sounding... almost TOO complex for the jump blues I play. I switched to Lenzner guts, but the E string was useless.
After much research, I'm leaning towards Garbos, but I'm not sure which set: the gut G; regulars; or lights.
I play a GK400RB through an LDS 1x15. I usually use an Underwood, although I'm looking at getting a Fonokraft pickup. The band is four-piece: bass, drums, guitar and harp/vocals. Loud, most of the time.
I don't do a ton of slapping; here and there, but mainly walking lines. I like a good thump.
