Hey fellow dwellers of the Low End, It's been a couple of months since I got my US Peavey Cirrus. I got it because more and more I'm getting into the Gospel vibe and it seemed like the best way to get that modern Hi-Fi sound without breaking the bank So far I love it and it has done everything I expected. BUT.... I have to come back to reality and admit that I don't play in any gospel bands. I play a lot of jazz, and I would like to somehow change the sound of this bass to where it's a little more appropriate for the style. Right now it's too snappy. I know I'm not going to get a vintage sound out of this bass, that's not what I'm going for. The sound that I wish to obtain is more along the lines of the bass player for Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band. Still modern sounding, and very beefy, but without so much snap. I'm thinking a change of strings is in order. The director of the band suggested flatwounds... I don't know about that... For what it's worth, right now I'm using light gauge DR Sunbeams. Probably a thicker gauge would be better. Anyway, any help that you may offer will be greatly appreciated.
