I am searching for bass strings that probably don't exist; chameleonic strings that can be manipulated by the pickups... On my acoustic-electric Ovation balladeer, a simple position switch from bridge to neck playing is a switch from bright tones to muddy thumping tones. This is using Ernie Ball Super Slinkies. But on my bass, this switch between bridge and neck pickups doesn't do anything. The D'addario roundwound heavy gauges remain obnoxiously bright. Is the versatile string I'm looking for simply Ernie Ball bass strings, or is my Gibson G3 just bright as hell? What is the most versatile type of bass string?
