I've been going back and fourth on string choices and decided that I'd like to give Thomastik-Infeld flats a try. I have a Hofner Ignition and was wondering if anybody has tried the TI's specifically made for Hofners (JF324H)? Here is the link to the strings: http://www.stringsandbeyond.com/thjfflwoshsc.html I have a couple questions before ordering for those who have tried this exact set of strings: 1. Do they required the silk wrap to be trimmed to fit? 2. I really want to experiment with low tension strings after using La Bella Beatle Bass strings and Chromes. Is the TI for Hofner string gauge (.096 - 043) too light if I tend to "dig in" when playing? Thanks.
