Hello! I am getting ready to go into the recording studio for my alt-folk/grunge/prog rock band. A couple of the songs I have written the parts on my EUB and as such prefer to play them on it, due to left hand muscle memory and all that. But ultimately I need to cut through a mix with two busy guitarists.... neither of whom can be convinced to strum and hold a chord for a single measure in a two hour set... or to upstroke in unison with the snare, or (god forbid) not play for a section. Anytime I suggest such a thing it seems to be taken as a personal attack... but that's another story! if my other band wasn't a masterclass in musical humility I'd have killed both these guitarist by now. Anyways.... My current strings just don't have enough bright top end to do the job. The fingerboard is purpleheart so it's pretty tough, but I still don't want to put any roundwounds on it (do such a thing even exist in 41" scale???) but some compression wounds would be pretty slick. So who's got recommendations for bright(!!!) EUB strings. 41" from nut to bridge. 6 1/2" from bridge to ball end. I'm contacting Ken Smith to see if he can make any compression wounds in this length, but would love any other ideas. Thanks!
