Should a pbass be strung with flats or wounds? Please provide pros and cons for both strings.
I'd better grab some popcorn.
Hee, Hee! I'm with you.
are you going to play metal???
Dead rounds. That's my preference.
If ya wanna play like Pino, get some flats!
GHS Precision Flats are the only strings allowed on a Precision Bass.
ERROR: More info required.
State genre of intended use.
You would probably be seen as a tiny bit less of a troll if you give us more information about what you want your bass to sound like at the end of the day.
What kind of stuff do you play?
What kind of tension do you like (some are very "tight" and some almost floppy to me).
Neither. Duh. You can only use P-Bass strings. Which means, any string package artwork that has a P-Bass on it: thems you can use.
-Rock, funk, jazz, etc.
I can just never get along with flats EQ wise. Love the feel though.
I found rounds to be very bright and clanky. I settled on ground rounds.
It is an absolute requirement that you have two p-basses. One with flats, one with rounds.
That is all.
I prefer dead rounds, DR Lo-Riders. Still looking for flats that I can get along with.
flats, flats, flats
all my basses have flats; all my basses are p-basses.
I'd say both.. you can go round, flat, round, flat.. or flat, round, flat, round..
Sometimes I like to take a jigsaw and cut down the center of each string lengthwise and then glue half of a round and half of a flat.
Lastly, you can get one or the other in a smaller gauge, cut your nut slots out a bit and drop one of each in each nut slot..
The possibilities are endless if you open your mind, really..
Round up some flats and put them on, or flatten some rounds and put them on, but make sure the brand name starts with 'P', or your bass will sound like a euphonium. Geez, I thought you would have known that.
Try both, choose the one you like best. That's your answer.
