    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone could give suggestions on brands and gauges of strings to use for a 6 string tuned EADGCF. I play largely jazz, funk, or more mellow stuff, not so much rock or metal, so I'm looking for something with a deep, mellow sound, possibly lighter guage, as I have small hands and stretching takes the strength right out of my pinky finger (need to work on that, I know). I'm also trying to decide between flatwounds and roundwound. Would flatwound on a fretted bass even make a diference? Thanks a million!
