Probably a stupid question, but here goes anyway. I have four basses now that I really like and after a long period of "severe GAS" I find myself pretty satisfied with what I have. I have a Steve Harris p-bass (with an American Standard Jazz neck that I just love - what a great combo), a Peavey Cirrus USA, a Fender Aerodyne (the Japan model with pickguard and dot inlays) and, most recently I filled out my stable with a very cheap and simple Fender MIM Standard Jazz bass that I just adore. I have always heard and now believe that if you get yourself a good p-bass and a good jazz bass you will have pretty much anything you want to do covered. However, I have a question about strings. I have the P-Bass and the Cirrus strung with light-guage chromes. A great combo and I have gotten to really, really like the smooth feel, the lessening of finger noise etc. Plus they just sound great on those two basses. But on the Aerodyne and the Jazz I tried but didn't like the flatwound chromes at all. I love the feel, that didn't change. I have really gotten used to the feel of the chromes....sort've a slick, almost plastic feel to me. The light guage seems to fit my hands and it just feels "right". But I don't like the sound. On these Jazz-type basses which I wanted for their brighter sound in general, I can't seem to get that with the flatwounds on them. So, very quickly....is there a string out there that would give me the basic feel of the flatwound chromes I am using and love the feel of...and yet give me a brighter sound that would be a little more like you would get using roundwounds with the Aerodyne and the Jazz? I know I am asking for a lot...probably defying the laws of physics but I just don't like the feeling of a thicker roundwound string anymore but want something like the sound you would get from them. Possible at all? I have no experience with any other flatwould strings except these D'Addario chromes. Is there such a thing as a "bright" flatwound string. Thanks as always for the help!
