I've been searching for the best "middle ground" string for a PJ bass. I have Chromes on my P-bass and Sunbeams on my fretted and fretless Jazz basses so wanted something a little different that might handle the middle ground on the PJ. After a lot of searching on TB, I thought I would try three strings that wouldn't break the bank: - D'Addario Half Rounds - GHS Brite Flats - GHS Pressurewounds Each of these have received enough praise on TB to warrant a try. I didn't make any recordings but let me hears be the judge. Of course, your taste may vary but between the three, I found the Half Rounds to be my favorite. Comparatively, the GHS Brite Flats definitely had the flats sound being more thumpy/thuddy compared to the halfs and PW's. I liked the sound of the Brite Flats but I have a similar sound already with the Chromes on my P-bass. The PW's were clangy with more of a round-wound sound compared to the halfs which isn't exactly the sound I was looking for. So, as you may have guessed, the halfs win it for me. I'm not a fan of the stickiness but hope that will go away in time. It's also possible that the halfs may deaden with time more toward the flats sound. At that point, maybe I'll throw on new ones or do another test of different sets. All in all, I'm happy with the "middle of the road" sound I'm getting from the halfs and feel it's a good sound that will be versatile for the PJ. Please feel free to state your thoughts about your experiences with strings for a PJ.
