Hi, strings are expensive as we all know. I've tried a god chunk of them undet the $30 mark all roundwounds . I play a fender deluxe active j with a badass2 bridge and heavy ghs strings. I just recently bought a dinged, passive epi goth thunder bird for $100 and it has some cheapo medium set.of strings on. Which bass would I have the most desirable sound? I guess I want tho aim for two totally different extremes with tone.
