Dullest stailess strings?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by bryan bailey, Jun 19, 2003.


  1. I am looking for some strings that sound a little dulling than SS strings, but still have that snap when you slap and pop. And ones that will retain this tone for a long period of time. So out of a scale from 1-10, 1 being the dullest,..... I am looking for a consistant 8. Is this possible?

    Have you tried La Bella's (Round Wound) Deep Talkin' Bass? I use 'em on my P Bass. I'm not quite a flatwound guy, I want some bite, but I don't want too much.
