I've read quite a few threads on here and done a few searches. I've beed a diehard D'Addario guy pretty much ever since I picked up a guitar about 20 years ago, but recently converted over to GHS strings for my banjo. I've read quite a few threads on here and done a few searches regarding flats, and am thinking about either the GHS Brite Flats or Pressurewound Flats. I really love the way flats sound, but I also play other styles of music that probably aren't optimal for flats. The sound I am going for most of the time is a more old-school, thumpy, more muted sound that flats would obviously provide (old school country, motown, bluesy type stuff, and even the 'rock' bassists I like (Carlos Dengler from Interpol, John Stiratt from Wilco, Colin Greenwood from Radiohead) have a more subdued, mellow round sound that flats wold most likely provide. But when I get together and jam with my friends its heavier, harder, indie-rock type stuff. I prefer to play with my fingers, but mix it up when I play with friends. So my question is this, is there a flatwound string that has that nice, round, thumpy tone, but could POSSIBLY be a little brighter with a touch more bite so that it cuts through a little bit? Obviously playing with a pick will change the tone and brighten it up, as will how close or far from the bridge I'm picking, as does my tone controls on my amp & bass (I'm well aware of all these variables!) I only have one bass (1976 Precision), so stringing one with flats and one with rounds isn't an option at this point. I'm just looking for suggestions for something that's middle of the road I guess, or a compromise between the two tones/sounds I'm going for. Traditionally, whenever you look for a compromise of two different things, you get some characteristics of both, but if never really is great for one or the other, but I am hoping for the best. Thanks in advance for advice and recommendations!
