This has probably been covered in part, so I apologise in advance. I'm looking for a 5-string set for my fretless. It has an ebony board and 40DC+BTC electronics, alder core and walnut top. I'm not worried by fingerboard wear, but don't really like the clack of rounds when I dig in. I can't find any half-round 5s here in Perth, so I'd like your opinions on the following strings from Bassguitarstrings.us. D'addario Halfround Nickels SIT Silencers Roto Solo Bass Ken Smith Compressors Ken Smith Slick Rounds I don't really like heavy-guage strings. I want to hear the upper mid swirl on the fretless, hence not using flats. I also dig in a fair bit at times with some songs and would like strings with some punch but less clack. What would you guys reccomend?
