I currently have a 2011 stingray classic(maple/ash) strung with fresh Dr Sunbeams(nickle) and a 89 stingray 2band(rosewood/poplar) strung with dead(1year plus) fatbeams I find that the 89 have considerably more mids than the stingray classic. I find it surprising, since both basses uses the same pre-amp and pleople claim nickle strings have more mids than SS. I thinking about swapping the fresh sunbeams for fatbeams to gain more mids? what do you guys think? Could it be that new strings are supposed to sound more scooped?
