String choice is so personal. I like the sound of TIs on other people's basses, but abhor them on mine. I've tried to like them several times, but absolutely despise the way they sound on my bass. Love the way they feel, hate the way they sound.
...they really do .
I'll have to check them out, never even heard of them.
LaBella Jamersons are the goo for Motown and Classic Rock, Black Diamond rounds are amazing for Country, and Sadowsky Black Label flats are astounding for everything else.
I was treated to play a bass fitted with TIs and I did not like the feel. Just too loose under the fingers for me, but that is their thing I gather, so if YOU like them more power to YOU.
GHS uber alles!
Having strings rules.
Yes, I'm definitely a fan of having strings over having no strings.
Particularly midway through a set when I started with all my strings and end up with less strings.
That being said, I'm heartily entrenched with Circle Ks. They're great!
love the sound
hate the rubbery feel
IMO if you like to play a lot of fast bass like Rush or Yes fingerstyle, the Ti's can be challenging. I imagine using a pick and picking closer to the bridge will help. I love the tone of TI's but they were just a tiny bit too floppy for my style of playing.
Been using TI Jazz Flats on all my basses for years and love everything about them. I've tried others but always go back to TI's.
I disagree. I use them and can play very fast with my right hand and I play exclusively with my fingers.
I like TIs and don't mind the floppiness at all, but I prefer heavier gauge La Bella's for the sound.
Labella's for me on everything but my Hofner I like Pyramid Golds on that young lady.
I'm sure it's mostly just me and My style. I play Quadruplets on my RIC and I play on the Neck side of the pickup cover. I can't get quite comfortable on the bridge side of the cover. I should have really removed the cover and tried that. I really did love the tone and Growl from the TI's.
Would it be a good idea to use ghs pressure wounds in a fretless or should I just use flat wounds?
Started using La Bella Deep Talkin' 760FL flats on my basses. They sound superb picked and played fingerstyle. Very deep, and I love how they allow me to get action low without buzz.
Only downside is they're not exactly strings for slapping - not that I do that so much anyway...
TimSuper Alloys rule the round wound world for me. I like TIJf's enough but play LaBella tape wounds and Chromes a lot more. Have two fretless basses with TIJf's and with the proper setup and a light touch they work nicely. Love the mid's in particular, much more complex harmonically than most if not all the other strings mentioned in this thread
but Chromes and frets rock ...
