I play upright about 98% of the time, but came up on electric. When I was last gigging regularly on electric, but dreaming of upright, I started using flatwounds on my Fender Jazz and really, really, really dug that sound. Oddly enough, I've changed electric basses several times since I mostly stopped playing electric bass, but usually went straight to flatwounds when I did. However, over time, I realized that when I play EBG I don't really want it to sound like my upright (which, I'm sorry, it really doesn't and can't anyway). So, I currently have a mid-90s passive Warwick Corvette and to move back to center a little bit on my sound I've been using GHS pressure wounds, which are a fine string. But, I have this experience where I pick up a bass somewhere and get this great feeling from playing it. Recently it was a Squire Jazz bass at someone's house, which really shouldn't bake my noodle, but it did. I just wanted to sit down and play it unplugged for an hour. It tells me that I'm missing something from the sound coming off of my instrument, unplugged or otherwise. I remember feeling that way about Corvettes too in shops, but I think I've tamed the Corvette out of mine and it may be time to try a more conventional string. I have some ideas and I've done some reading and YouTube video watching, but rather than poison the well, let me just throw it to the connoisseurs here for some suggestions. A few criteria. When I switched to upright almost 20 years ago, it destroyed my hands. I'm long over that. But, the callouses are different and I fear stainless steel roundwound a bit. I'll get over it if you guys tell me I have to, but I won't play EB enough to keep instrument specific callouses, so something somewhat easier on the hands is better. I don't love stiffness. I enjoy feeling the string vibrate. I don't slap or pop. Think jazz, blues, a little funk/soul. Nothing too modern. Just four lonely strings. Passive pickups, good quality signal chain off the instrument. I don't think that I want anything too pingy or zingy, but clearly I'm looking to head that direction from where I am. What say, ye?
