    I just took my 1966 Hofner 500/2 Club bass out of storage. I restrung it with "original" Hofner flats. Sounds pretty crappy. I was wondering if anybody else uses a Hofner and, if so, what other strings are available to give me a better sound. I know this semi-hollow bass has a different tone than the newer solids, but there has to be a better set of strings for a fuller range of sound for this bass. If anyone has experience with the Hofner short scale (30") bass, please suggest a good set of strings (wound or flat). Thanks.
