(Also posted in Strings forum). I bought a new G&L Tribute L-2000 last week (34" scale, 4-string). I love the tone options, but I find that, overall, the tone is just a little too bright. The stock strings are D'Addario rounds. I want to tame the beast a little with some new strings, probably flatwounds. I've always played light guage (40-95 or 45-100) rounds and am looking for a set of strings with roughly equal tension. I also want to retain just a little of the brightness of the rounds, so I'm thinking a set of flats a little on the bright side might be the answer, but I definitely want the smooth, fat flatwound sound. From what I've read, D'Addario Chrome flats have a bright sound, as far as flats go, but they have a high string tension. Thomastiks tend to be "floppy" (is that floppy compared even to rounds, or just compared to other flats?). I didn't find much about the string tension of LaBella Deep Talkin' flats. So, I'm open to suggestions.
