Tried Brite Flats, or Pressurewounds? GHS short scale fits the cat perfectly.
I can't play rounds anymore, the roughness sets off my nerve damage, flats are okey dokey with me, although a second one with cobalts would be cool, the tapes I just love on this
I generally prefer flats and tapes, and will eventually put a set on the cat, but the TI Jazz rounds are very nice on this bass!
Did their short scale fit well then? I have Jazz rounds on my darkstar bass and they feel fine, don't give me problems. I'd be CRUSHED to get a second cat
I posted a pic several pages back that shows how they fit.

They’re not a perfect fit, but work fine anyway. I also have them on a fretless Birdsong. Same situation with the E string, but no resulting issues on either bass.
I find Dunlop flats are super nice with a couple months on them. Not quite enough to keep on that bass, and reinstalled the old La Bella Low Tension Flats. Steady as she goes with the Balanced Nickels here on the cat, and they're the first rounds I've played in a couple years. Break-in on the BNs has been great.
You'd think I'd pay attention to a post I liked
Is the tension of the strings noticeable between the Dunlop’s and the low tension La Bella’s?
I found the two to be pretty close, and made no adjustments to the truss rod installing, and later, reinstalling both. OTH the Dunlop is marginally stiffer under my fingers. Have played neither TIs nor Chromes, so can't comment on real world differences between the Dunlops and LTFs and those.
Well, they are now officially sold out until fall. The email from Nordstrand said: "Currently Sold Out, next shipment to arrive in the fall."
Now I just gotta be patient until Mo gets mine set up. Yeah, right. My predictive model says I should get my shipping notice on June 15. Haven't gotten any new data since @LowWay got his on 5/26, so I'm now convinced my model is wrong and I won't see it until July-ish. I've got GAS!
Well, I would think that there are some who have ordered the Cat that aren't on TB so we may not know the actual order numbers that are up to date. Maybe your model isn't that far off since it looks like they have been shipping about 200 orders per month if I recall some of your posts reflecting that amount.
Yep, you are correct on all points. I am just anxious. My (woefully inadequate) model still has time on it, I'm just really eager. My model says that they ship about 226 per 30-day month. So you are right on with your guess.
MIM at the tail end of my first recording project with it if you want to update the model.
your model predicted mine perfectly to the day!
So awesome to see
Oh. My. My dreams are about to come true. (and Mo appears to be working overtime....)
Mo deserves a medal
please don't spoil mo.
Woo Hoo! Shipping notice has been received! Order #6330! A few days earlier than my model predicted. If I'm gonna be wrong, that's the best way.
