Hi all, Finally gig my hands on a Warwick, which I've always wanted! OK so it's a Rockbass Corvette but I could never afford the German-made version! It had some old strings on it in the shop which were slightly dead but had that amazing sound of wood feel and really brought out the high end J sound too. I like a combo of cutting through and a woody tone so I whacked on some DR Hi-Beams and now it just sounds like any other metallic bass sound- not what I was after. Do you guys think broken in strings is the answer or do I need nickels, or possibly half-wounds, to get that combo of warm woody tone and cutting edge? Thanks in advance- Talkbass is awesome!!
