i need to know is it roundwound or Flatwound
neither its more what strings do you like the sound of for blues
try dr sunbeams for a warm vintagey sound
Personal preference.Whatever you like,is what works best for you.
Da Blues ain't 'bout da strings!
Da Blues is 'bout what's in your soul, your heart and your mind!!!!!
The cheapest kind!
and "let 'er EAT!"
I'm not kidding..
I voted Flatwound. no need to explain
I play a lot of blues, I use flatwound right now but before I actually used some tapewound nylons, and they were perfect. Very smooth tone, it was great.
But that unfortunately isn't an option in the poll haha.
I use flats. Even so, you can EQ your bass differently & get a great blues thump from rounds as well. Just make it stop sounding piano-like by dropping the mid range. Oh......and lose the pick.
whatever suits you the best!
Probably nickel plated roundwounds for a darker tone. I have flatwounds on a couple of basses, but they're not very versatile. The nickels still give you a darker sound, but also the versatility to play more styles of music.
is that true
I have used both and both work for the Blues. I take a nickelround strung Bass if I walking into a group I have never played with before. If I think flats would work better I bring a flatwound strung Bass the next time.....If I feel like coming back that is.
