Greetings and Happy New Year! Can you advise me on string selection for an MK Studio P electric upright bass, which should be completed in a a couple of weeks? I have been reading TB threads about strings, but the response of the MK pickup sounds different from the Stagg and NS basses, and might suit different strings. I am a beginner, 3 months on a double bass (might be comparable to a Christopher but is labeled for the Houston violin shop where I bought it). That bass has Helicore orchestral strings, middle tension I think. It is a little dark sounding, and lighter tension may be less fatiguing. I have played fretted bass guitar about 35 years, and would like to transition to upright bass in the small ensembles in church and the folk/blugrass jam with friends from work. The MK EU bass will be for performances at church, which should not have feedback problems indoors.
