    What are you using now? If you have flats then switch to rounds. They are much brighter.

    If you're happy with the current sound, I wouldn't change it. It's really your preference, first and foremost.

    If you want something a bit more mellow, switch over to nickel-plated steel or nickel strings.

    A Pressurewound string will give you a much more mellow sound than the aforementioned nickels and a smoother feel, but still have articulation.
