What are the best tight strings for guages 50-110 on a 4-string? I want a thumpy thick bass sound.
You probably want flats with a p-bass, works for me. That reminds me, time to update my profile, maybe i'll get to it in a week or so.
How about some Ernie Ball Power Slinky. havent tried them but some people swear by em. The other Ernie's I tried, however were great strings.
I have DR Stainless Steel Lo Riders on, and I LOVE them! Much better than Ernie's, and that's hard to say.. But if you're wanting a thumpy thick sound, get the nickle. Or some flats.
If you're willing to do a little homework, like looking at string makers' websites, you'll find some use thicker cores than others.
The core is what will give you "tight" feeling strings.
Otherwise, do a search for "tight" in the Strings forum.
