so, usually i leave the strings on my basses for quite a while. I think the rotosoud strings on my T-bird are almost 7 years old. I have a set of Martin phosphor-bronze on my Dean a/e bass and but it seems they've just about run their course. Sounds really shallow and dampened. I was wondering if anybody had a preference for flat wound, or maybe a light gauge set. I was considering going flat, or half wound what have you used to get a good bright response from an acoustic bass?
