Hey, I know there's a number of threads that prance around this topic, but I'm reading a lot of things that seem confusing and contradicting, so I wanna see who can give me a straighter answer So, for the past many years, I've been obsessed with getting exactly Steve Harris' bass tone, and I still am, for the most part. I've been playing with an extremely "klanky" tone, which I love. But, recently, I've decided that I want to experiment with a really growly tone tone for a while, and also, its really expensive to buy $55 rotosound steve harris signature flatwounds evert few weeks....I can't afford it any longer. I've never really tried to get a "growly" tone before, but I know that incredibly heavy gauge flatwounds (steve harris sigs) are probably the opposite of what one would use to get a growly tone... So, here's what I want to find out: -What are the growliest strings out there? -What are the growliest CHEAP strings out there? -Is it possibly to get a really growly tone with out sacrificing all my beloved Steve Harris Klank? -Is it possible to get a growly tone with thicker gauge strings? BTW, I play fingerstyle on a P-bass with s.d. quarter pounders, if that helps. Thanks a lot!
