    i am looking for some strings that are really mellow,but have a high finger noise,so i can turn up the midrange without them sounding harsh.

  5. but it doesn't make sense...if you turn up your midrange with strings that have high finger noise it sounds harsh!

    I found TI Jazz Flats to have quite a bit of plucking-hand noise, which is what I assume we're talking about. Kind of a string-bassish swish-thump. And yes, boosting the mids, especially around 750-800 Hz. accentuated the sound.
