The preamp is going out on my 1993 Pedulla 6 string Thunderbolt, and my tech is going to install a new Bartolini 3 band EQ preamp (the 4.6 NTMB) to replace it. I've used DR Lo Riders on this bass for the past year or so and I really like them, but I've always dug the feel and solid tone of flatwound strings. Most of the people I play with are jazz and blues guys, but I also enjoy hip hop and hard rock as well as solo chord work. How will a set of Chromes fit this instrument and new preamp personality-wise? Will I be able to EQ tones that will fit these various styles? Cool jazz like Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderley, rock like Coheed & Cambria, hip hop like Macklemore or Robert Glasper, and solo stuff like Victor Wooten's "Isn't she Lovely?" Or should I stick with the DRs and see how they play with the new pre first?
