Hey guys, I did several searches, and I couldn't find a satisfying answer. I was listening to some old jazz (well, 50s or 60s) and I decided that I want that type of sound. Oscar pettiford's tone really stands out to me as the sound I'm looking for, but I'd like a little bit of buzz on the G strings and to a lesser extent the D string. Like a fretless has mwah, I want mwah on the double bass on the higher strings, but I want a nice round thump out of all the strings. I currently play D'Addario helicores, and I love them but they're just a little bright and thin for me. I know a guy who'll let me borrow some sets of strings so I could play a mixed set as well. I'm a complete newb to strings so any help would be very gratefully recieved, and if this topic has been covered before please point me in the right direction. Cheers Joe Oh, and I don't like guts, too expensive and difficult to maintain.
