Flats: Pros: no fret buzz, clean clear tone (diad chords ring out beautifully), smooth slides (low friction string), the obvious mellow tone. Con: very high tension interferes with playability, high end can be a bit empty sounding (though quite clean) Rounds: Pros: playability (low tension), high notes ring out a bit more clearly Con. overalll tone inferior to flats, fret buzz, slides aren't as smooth as flats I am currently using D'adario chromes on my 4 string pj bass. I love the tone of it (though the highs could be a little bit brighter). Before switching to chromes I was using progressively lighter gauge strings, I was down to 90-40 set. I loved the low tension for bending and soloing and just overall playability. I love the tone of my chromes now, but the playability is a challenge for me. Please reccomend a set of strings that will minimize fret buzz, give me the mellow low end of flats but with some of the brightness in my higher register that I got from rounds. Most importantly, I would like to find strings that do all these things and still have low tension for bending slapping and all a round playing. I have been considering GHS pressure wounds as they sound like they might be right up my alley. I am also considering going with a lighter gauge flatwound like a 95-45 set of the chromes I have now. Will going to a lower gauge flatwound give me the lower tension I want? Will going to pressurewound fix my tension issues, but at the cost of introducing fret buzz again? Anyone who has had experience with Pressurewounds, chromes, and light gauge flats please let me know what you think is best for me based on the characteristics I described. Thank you in advance to anyone who can give me advice.
