About 3 years ago I switched from roundwounds (Ernie Ball Slinkys) to flatwounds (GHS Precision Flats). I have loved the feel and the thump/punch of the flats but find that on slower material (country ballads, P&W etc.) the lack of sustain is really an issue. I am also having a little trouble getting the “cut” and definition I need in a lineup with 2 electric guitars + occasional acoustic and drums. So I’m wondering if there’s a string set anyone can recommend as a “best of both worlds” solution. FWIW the bass in question is a 78 Precision with active EMG PJ pickups. Money is somewhat of an object… I would like to keep my total outlay below $30 if possible and prefer medium gauge (.105 E string), with moderate-high tension. Also curious to know if halfwounds eventually go dead (like rounds), or if the effect is just less pronounced), and about how long I could expect a set to last assuming 6-10 hours a week of rehearsals and gigging. EDIT for more background: I play about 90-10 fingerstyle to pick (no slap), use a pretty light touch and run my action very low. Thanks in advance.
