I play a variety of short scale basses, including a couple of SUB ubasses from Kala. I have put their wound-rounds on those, and I am quite pleased with them. Just yesterday though, I took delivery of one of their solid mahog hollow-bodies. I like it because the more upright tones make it a better fit for some "jazz-inspired" sounds. In fact, that was the argument I used to justify the purchase, and the fretless neck. Of course, it came with the stock strings. I like them quite a bit better than the ones I first encountered about 4 years ago (not as sticky) but I wonder what might be even better. Remember, my whole goal for this instrument is to get as close as I can to the sound of an upright - For a seasonal reference, think "The Christmas Song" (aka "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas") with perhaps some piano or a jazz guitar and brushes on a snare. Mel Torme, that sort of thing. Any suggestions?
