I just won a Mexican Jazz bass off ebay and I realy like it except Im wanting to get new strings for it. I was wondering what I shoudl get. I already have a set of Ernie Ball slinkys that my parents bought my for christmas. I really am Looking at Rotosound strings cause all of my favorite bassists use/used them. Jaco , John Paul to name a few. I know JPJ used Swing 66's , im not sure about Jaco. But I listened to the soundbyte for 66's and the strings sound ver metallic. do all strings sound like this when they are fresh? Like does that sound wear off ? Also i was thinkin about maybe getting some flats for it. What flats should i get for a MIM Fender Jazz. The Rotosound flats sound good too.
