I have been a round steel guy for most if my bass life. I play fingerstyle and slap. I like my fingerstyle tone to be like Bernard Edward (punchy and mellow) and my slap tone like Vic Wooten(punchy, clear, and not too bright). Flats get me very close to Bernard's tone and I love that. But all the ones I tried were either too high tension (Chromes, Cobalt, Dunlop) or not bright enough (TI). I can get the versatility I need from the Dunlop but the tension is hindering my speed and slapping (like triplets). I wish the Dunlop would come in a light or extra light set. That would be perfect. Are there any flats out there that are low tension or very light that are bright enough to sound good and clear slapped?
