Hey guys, I just got my first bass. It's a 60 year old all plywood German bass. Although it is not near the sound of any carved bass, I'd like to exploit it to its fullest potential. Once set up right, I think this bass is going to take me through my begining stages of learning. Anyways my question is: what are the best strings for plywood basses? I will be doing both classical and jazz so I will need a set for both. I'd like to get a warm vintage tone, something that will open up the bass a bit. Also, what is the cheapest place on the net for strings? Thanks.
