I'm mainly looking for your 2 cents, I know strings fall under the «different strokes» and personnal preferences topic, but I'd like to hear input from you, knowledgeable people. 2 months ago, I got a marcus miller jazz v, had the intonation and setup done by a luthier who suggested me dunlops roundwound. So I went with them. I know it makes sense to use roundwound with a maple neck which makes them more ''alive'' but I'm starting to find this bass a bit too unforgiving for my skill level. Lots of fret sound, unintentional tapping, noisy slides, etc. I have dhs flat brites on my acoustic bass (rosewood) and I really like them so... What would I gain/lose by switching to flats ? How about slapping, will it still kinda work or will my tone suck big time ? Will the intonation remain the same or will the bass need a new intonation/setup ? Should it be considered as taking it easy (flats) or learning how to play like a man (round) ?
