as you may remember, i defretted one of my basses a while ago but i left the old strings on. they are old DR nickel lo-riders and they sound pretty good, but i want something that will be slightly lesser tension, be gentle on the fingerboard, and most importantly, be punchy and middy and expressive. i have fender 9050L flats on another one of my basses, and while i dig them, it's NOT the sound i'm going for with my fretless. so i'm considering these options, none of which i have tried before: -TI flats (by all accounts very low tension - not too low, i hope?) -DR sunbeams (these are roundwounds, but with a round rather than hex core, supposedly good for fretless) -tapewounds, which i know next to nothing about. labella? rotosound? i know that an obvious solution is to finish the board with poly and continue using roundwounds, but i want to give new strings a shot, because i'm not crazy about the feel of coated boards. any advice on the above list, or new suggestions, would be much appreciated. by the way, i use the p-pickup on this bass most of the time.
