    sorry for the unclear title

    my question... does the type of string onmy bass make a difference when it comes topopping and slapping? do other strings pop/slap better than others?
     
  2. Yes it does make a difference...roundwounds slap better then flatwounds, and in the roundwound world, IMO, stainless steel slap better than nickel.

    Note that some strings sound different on some basses than others, so you might want to check with people who have the same bass as you do.
