I am beginning research in the event that I remain dissatisfied with the Spiro G on my brand new New Standard La Scala laminate. After using an Oliv G on my other bass, I have come to love its THICK feel and attack, and how that thickness is consistent all the way up the FB. However I don't think an Oliv G is right for what I'm after on this bass. I'm looking for a G (and maybe D) that might lean in that direction. Here's what else I want: Something to compliment Spiro E & A Darker, rounder tone, but not "old-school" can be steel or synthetic, as long as pitch is stable Mainly for pizz Smooth windings (flatwound) What might be some likely candidates - Dominants, Permanents, Flexocores, Flat Chromesteels, make me an offer.
