Thump

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by fenderbassabuse, Apr 9, 2004.


  1. I would like to get a nice thump/growl for my P-bass. Sort of Smoke on the Water tone, or anything else that will sound similar. Many thanks.
     
  2. Nickel Round Wounds or Stainless Flatwounds, Ground Round Wounds may also work but Stainless Round Wounds would be much too bright.

    Flatwounds sound great on P basses. D'Addario Chromes work.
