So I am trying to figure out my string situation... Have all original Flexicores with a Belcanto G rn. I like the Flexicore tone but the strings are quite hard to initiate and can be muddy. Not ideal for fast playing and missing some sparkle. Tone wise quite good for sure. Very Phat in a full way which I love. Belcantos are nice all around but maybe a little lackluster (needs more body/oomph?). Seems tame but worth it for the ease of playing. Anywho, I see Berlin guys using these Original Flat Chromes, Belcantos, or a mix. My old teacher use to love the flatchromes. I think Joel has one on his low G in his last video and possibly Rinat had used them too? I am thinking either bel canto top 3 with a flatchrome E, bel canto G with the rest flatchrome, or possibly some kind of mix of the two. I have a french bass with good tone and projection but could probably use a string with good spread. Trying to build a full, dark, voluminous, powerful sound that is easily playable (if this is even possible lolol) Any setup ideas? How do the Original Flat Chrome compare to the Original Flexicore? Will either be at all more or less responsive/not so slow (I feel like even when the flexicore is going it is still slow) Any other ideas for string setups after reading? Have used Passione starks and Flexicore in the past and they are great. Do you all think I would like Obligatos or Evahs? Permanent E thoughts? Thanks for the help!!!
