(I apologize in advance if this thread already exists). I recently got a used Sub bass from eBay & would like to replace the factory strings, which are pretty beat up. I LOVE the sound & feel of flatwounds, but understand they would be a waste on this bass(?). I would like to venture away from them for this bass. On other basses, I've tried D'Addario nickels (they're ok...) Tried Ernie Ball Cobalts (too bright- didn't like them) The steel strings I loved the best were the factory strings from my Ibanez gsr200. So anyone have any string success stories for this type of bass? Thanks.
