yep, it's string buying time again. Even after entering my 8th year of playing bass i haven't found a set of strings that is "my set". I've been using flats and really like them so i think i'm half way there. so far i've used Fender and Carvin flats and liked both but am looking for a little more bite, like mid hit, not that really bright, bite your face off growl. I really dig the thud and "Doom" (by doom i mean the sound literally, like if you say "doom") sound you get from flats. I've been looking at maybe getting D'Addario Half Rounds or Chrome Flats and just wondered what they sound like and what other bassists think. I've also been looking at TI Jazz flats or even their Jass Rounds if they're mellow and have the sound i'm looking for. Also, i use harmonics quite a bit in our songs so it'd be nice to know how harmonics respond. thanks guys.
