I just changed the strings on my "Geddy Lee" signature Jazz Bass for the second time. I took off the Fender stainless steel round wounds as soon as I got it, and put a set of GHS Bass boomers on, but I didn't like them either. On advice from a friend, I ordered a set of the Thomastik-Infeld Jazz flat wounds (JF344) from www.juststrings.com. These strings are just what I was looking for, very easy on the fingers, they have a great sound, with plenty of punch and brightness, and the tension is very close to standard round wound strings. Don't know how they would sound on other basses, but on a Jazz Bass they sound fantastic. Just thought I'd let you guys know, in case anyone was shopping for new strings.
