    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone had any string recommendations for my medium-scale Fender Stu Hamm Urge bass.

    I've tried medium-scale Rotosound SwingBass. I liked them for a while, but then decided that they are too bright and zingy.
    I'm now using a set of medium-scale RotoSound Jazz Bass flat wounds, which are really cool. I enjoy the extra thump that they give me and they're a different tension to the roundwounds, which to me, has made the guitar feel much better when playing.

    I am tempted to stick with the Jazz Bass strings, but I am curious as to what other strings people may be using on this guitar.

    I want to stick with medium-scale strings. I once tried cutting down some normal scale strings, but they ended up being too fat for the pegs.
    I play a mixture of rock and pop.

    Thanks,

    Dave.
