I hate strings, I like TI superalloys, but they still lack something.. ..and I don't feel like buying another package of strings for 30 bucks They lack bottom! - I like the bottom in flatwounds - I like the roundwound growl - I could use a little bit of a thump - I like nickel over steel I've tried DR lo-riders before, but they were only available in steel and not really smooth. I would say that they were rather grindy and clangy. I play with a strong attack when I'm in a band situation. The TI's lack a bit of bottom, but are perfect otherwise: smooth, pretty growly and nice tension/feel. What would you suggest? EDIT: Equipment: jazz bass with dimarzio model J's, 2 switches to stack both pickups seperatly in serie/parallel.
