    I'm about to change strings on my Fender Precision but I'm not really sure which ones I'll put on. My choices are Fender 9050, TI Jazz JF344 or LaBella Deep Talkin' Flats. Right now I've got Rotosound Jazz flatwounds on it and they're not bad, but I think it could be better. I really want to hear the TI jazz flats but to install them I'd have to adjust the neck relief first, which means I'd have to unmount the neck etc. etc. and since I'm a bit lazy I thought I'd ask in here if anyone has got a recording of TI jazz flats with a precision. (Well actually I'd even have to bring the bass to a pro to get a nice setup, since I'm scared of damaging the truss rod). It'd be nice if someone of you could help me out. I've searched the forum but haven't found any recordings with TI jazz flats at all. A recording of a precisision with LaBella Deep Talkin' Flats as a comparision would be nice too.
    well.. thanks in advance

    I don't have any real music done but here's a quick clip I just did.

    Edit: These are the TI Jazz Flats but do not recall the gauge.

    My band's website has audio clips from our album:


    Best examples:

    "Belz" is TI JFs on a fretless P/J.

    "Mayn Shvester Khaye" is TI JFs on a fretted Precision.

    thanks for the replies..

    I think I'll go with the Fender or LaBella strings though..
    :bag: :)
  7. T.I. user here; the sound solod is very middy, but these strings are sure to have you sounding good in a band context. Also, I have my flats on a bass with a single EMG-hz in a sweetspot further towards the neck than a stingray, more or less in the P pup position. The tone is great, and the strings offer a feel I've yet to cross from any other string maker, especially in a flat. They also sound amazing with the piezo's in that same bass. I have nowhere to host clips, otherwise I'd be recording one for you right now.

    well the more I listen to these samples the more I like the tone, even soloed. I think I'll have to give'em a try after all... else I'll never sleep again :)
