I am really starting to hate the string selection process. But I hope we can all stand to keep reading these string threads and try to help each other out. I'm trying to find something between the traits of Dominant's and Flexocore 92's. Here are my thoughts thus far, based on my ear, and I'd appreciate any ideas someone wants to throw out there in regards a string that lands in the middle of these two sets. Dominant: Loud Deep fundamental Pretty good arco Pretty good pizz A little too bright with the bow Bigger gauge (which I like) Flexocore 92: Quieter than Dominant Better arco Not that great of a pizz tone Rich and smooth with the bow Smaller gauge (I have a stark E and regular A, D, G) I have one bass, an Eastman VB305, so the luuxury of a pizz bass and an arco bass is not possible. The Eastman is a fairly big sounding carved bass, so I certainly want to capitalize on that when selecting strings. Already tried (on this bass): Superflexible Spirocore Mittel Flat Chromesteel Velvet Anima Still want to try: Velvet Compas 180 Thanks.
