Bass strings that sound clanky and honky

    I love my D’addario Chromes and GHS Pressurewounds..

    But I can’t stand Ernie Ball strings.. slinky’s Roundwounds, Custom Guage Flatwounds and cobalts Flatwounds seem to me to be very clanky against my fret board.. very honky when I get on em hard..

    But the Chromes and Pressurewounds seem nice and mellow in comparison.
  2. Clank and honk - not for me, either. No thanks.

    So I guess a white knight in shining armor would be a clanky honky :whistle:
