    Well I have it at a place where I want, I meant something that will help me in that tone, I know it depends on much more, I just want a string set that will help it a little bit...ya know?

    Of course many things go into it. But I used Steel strings forever and have recently switched to nickles. I noticed a much "growlier" tone when digging in.

    aaaaaaand those aren't strings :smug:
  8. Boost the mids on your amp, dig in deep with your fingers and use stainless steel roundwounds. Anything else might require altering your instrument or spending a lot of money on a new amp or signal processor.
