I'm trying to figure out what set of strings would work best with the Lakland/Bartolini system that came on my 2007 Lakland Skyline 55-02 I play with a pick most of the time, having recently switched over to bass from guitar. I prefer more of a slightly agressive P bass tone. I know that many have described the Lakland/Bartolini system as polite or mellow sounding. I like the fat round sound that it produces but I would like to be able to cut through the mix a bit more. Didn't know if certain string sets could help me accomplish this. I've read that the SS strings are going to be brighter than nickel. When I think bright I think slap tones which I'm not into. I play through an Ampeg PF500 head into 2 Genz Benz Neox 112's Any recommendations? Thanks.
