I've been playing in a jazz trio setting a bit lately, using my friend's upright-electric -- but as that instrument is going to be inaccessible soon, I'm planning to switch back to my fretless for a bit. That said, I need the right strings for the tone I'm looking for - as the current Roundwound's on it aren't cutting it. Here's the deal. It's a Dean Edge 4 Fretless bass. I'm looking to make it sound as much like an upright as possible, to get a smooth jazzy tone and feel out of it. I have the following strings available to me for discounted prices (all under $20) as I work at a music store: * Fender Light Stainless Steel Flatwounds - $15 * D'Addario Regular Light Half Rounds - $18 * D'Addario Regular Light Flatwounds - $19 * D'Addario Medium Nylon Tapewounds - $21 * ROTOSOUND Standard Jazz Bass Monel Flatwounds - $23 Are any of those good strings for the sound I'm looking for? To describe it better, I'm looking for the following elements to my tone, in approximately this order: * Woody * Punchy (i.e. a strong attack, and a lower sustain level) * Very little growl * Clarity (nice high end) * Smoothness * Depth Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
