What are the warmest souding strings in the world?
For steel: Jargars
Mine. Sorry, I couldn't resist. There's core material to consider, playing styles to consider, and tons of strings to choose from.
If it could all be nailed own so easily, there wouldn't be but a few choices of strings to pick from. Differing tones (warm, thick, thin) can all be derived from differing strings depending on the player and his/her attack, plucking style, bowing style, etc., etc.
I play either guts (nylon wound on top and silver wound on bottom, indoor climate controlled gigs) or Velvet Garbos (simulated gut, outdoor gigs in the summer heat & humidity). But, I have 2 basses, so I don't end up changing strings for either set of circumstances. I just change basses.
Here's hope that you find your quest.
...and, of course, the bass! There can be huge interactions between instruments and strings. That's just one reason it'll never be "one size fits all."
That's a given, since they made more than one bass as well. I think they're still making them! The powers that be figured if they didn't make more than one bass, we'd all be fighting for it, or there'd be fewer of us trying to play to begin with.
Sorry DRUB, I couldn't resist.
