pretty soon i'm gonna spring for some new strings on my newly acquired shen sb200. I want to get some recommendations as i have searched and searched through the archives and pretty much narrowed it down. i have a few questions still though. the bass has dominants of unkown age on it. the g string seems to be way way off from the rest of the set. it is raspy sounding with the bow no matter what pressure or bow speed i use, and definately way brighter than the rest of the set when playing pizz. my bass has just been setup with an unadjustable bridge and the string heights are 5,7,9,11 from g to e and the nut slots are just right for dominants. the bass could use a little more growl on the A and E strings, the D is nice, and the G is way off from the rest. i want a woody tone with lots of overtones but not metallic sounding, the G and D need to be smooth and organic sounding (think LaFaro). I am thinking of going with some superflexibles, how much brighter are they than dominants and how much darker than spirocores. the bass i used to play had flexocors (i think) on it for the three years (violet top and bottoms) i played it and probably much longer than that too, and were nice and thick, i am used to playing those, tension on the dominants is fine. any other ideas of where to start? flatchromesteel? the g string on the dominants is the thinnest i want to go for now (i'm used to thick strings). i was also considering some of the brighter flexocors ('92's) for the G and D and then something like a superflexible for the A and E....but i think i want to start off with a full set to see how that works. the dominants have probably been off atleast five times since they were on it when it was setup so is that possibly why the g string sounds so raspy????? i'm really thinking some Eudoxa's would be nice but....i just had my setup done for the dominants, would nut slots need to be opened up for these....and there is that fact that i think i might lose some volume.
