I am a new player (in my second year of playing) and play a 50's Kay with Innovation Silver Slaps on it. It was originally set up to be a slapper's bass I assume, because of the strings (duh
and high action). I do enjoy the pizz. sound of the bass, with the high action it gives off a good thump sound. The acro sound though, that is what I am not happy with. I can't play fast passages at all, where I can on other basses. So I would like a new set of strings, as my interest in the bow is growing. As for pizz. tone, I like a big, warm, thumpy, and LOUD sound, and I am not particularly fond of the bright "twangy" sound of some steel strings . For arco, I am would like a better response than my current strings.
I do have a higher action, because I like a loud bass, so softer strings would be better, but I am not particularly set on this.
Please give me your recommendations
