I’m trying to like these strings. I’ve had them on several basses and currently have them a new bass. Rehearsal is tonight, so we will see how that goes, but this my observation so far. If I play the bass solo, just practice, I’m ready to rip them off the bass immediately. I ordered another set of flats today for that very reason. However, in preparing for rehearsal, I played them with a recording and they are magic in the mix! Tonight will be the final test. Is this another case of playing at home sounds good, mix bad. And, if the mix sounds good, home bad? What say you?
