Sup guys, bass newbie here! I started playing bass a few months ago, owning a yamaha TRBX174 (I prefer to get better before starting to invest more money). So right now I am thinking about changing my strings (pretty sure it's roundwounds) to tapewounds, because I heard that they are very smooth to the touch, eliminating calluses on my fingers, and also because of the clear and « pure » sound. Thing is, I am also a metalhead, and I wish to try playing with distortions eventually, and I recently found the epicness of drop D BUT, I am also thinking of picking a lighter gauge because I have a very hard time pressing the strings with all of my fingers, severely limiting my agility. IN SHORT: light tapewounds with distortion tuned in drop d; am I spouting nonsense!? Ps: I am sorry for the long post, But I am afraid to waste my money on something that won’t work!
