I'm currently playing a maple board Peavey Foundation strung with like-new roundwounds (brand unknown, but they feel like nickel. I bought the bass used). The strings tend to ring even when I'm not playing on that string. I admit to having gotten away from electric for several years, but I don't think my technique is the problem. I want to keep the roundwound growl and clarity, but I want to eliminate the string noise without completely rolling off the (passive) tone, and the excessive ringing without having to constantly mute with my palm. I've been hearing so much on these boards about the TI Jazz flats that I figured I'd ask. I've read the threads related to these strings, but none of them answered my question. Will these strings eliminate the ringing and string noise (well, I know they'll stop the string noise), but preserve the traditional midrange growl/clarity/sustain of the single-coil/roundwound combo? I know flats are something of a tradeoff in this regard -I don't expect them to sound exactly like rounds- but I absolutely do not want a thumpy sound; I have my upright for that. I hope someone here can help with this issue. Thanks in advance.
