I know the Fender Jazz has some noisiness to it.. but I just switched to Fender flatwounds.. and the noise is worse than worn roundwounds. Will this go away? I was expecting a nice bassy sound to these strings, but they are so bright they are unbearable. I really get tired of brightness.. and it even seems like my Sansamp contributes to the brightness. I generally have to turn the treble on the Jazz bass all the way down, and decrease the mids on the Sansamp. I had thought roundwounds were contributing to this factor. I have a sloppy technique overall, too aggressive, from playing Rush mostly over the years, but there is just so much finger noise, brightness. I mute strings fine.. it's just when playing something like the solo from Freewill, I get clicks as the strings get plucked.. and the flatwounds have made this worse. My friends refer to this as "snappy sounds.." and in a band setting, I cannot hear it. Suggestions for strings are appreciated. Is there a flatwound that would sound great for an Ampeg/Sansamp setup, using a Fender Jazz. Playing Rush, Thin Lizzy, Commodores, and stuff like this? I cannot really afford the TIs.. I guess I need to check out Rotosounds. Also, what about webstrings.com? Any experience with any of these companies' flatwound? The Fenders are simply SO bright it's ridiculous.. they are like GHS Boomers, which I despised.
