I wanted to have some opinions and/or facts from folks in the know. I've currently got my short scale bass strung with 40-95 gauge D'Addario NPS rounds. I don't mind the loose tension but find that I can't get my action as low as I want. Would moving up a gauge allow me to lower my action due to reduced flexibility? Maybe 45-100... Alternatively, are there any short or medium scale flatwounds that would enable me to keep the tension about the same as these 40-95 rounds? This particular bass is a bit trebly anyway (it's the Warwick corvette SS active, I wish I'd got the passive model, oh well) so it wouldn't hurt to tame it down a bit. I have knackered hands which is the reason for wanting to keep the tension lower. For comparison, 45-105 rounds on a long scale bass is too high tension for me. Thanks in advance, looking forward to hearing some views.
