I'm washing my hands of TI Jazz flats and switching to something else. 4 bad strings in a row is just too much. I'm also starting to think maybe the TI middy sound isn't for me. I love it when I'm playing by myself but I don't like how it sits in the mix with other people. Does that make any sense? This is a bit of a problem for me. I don't want to give up on the low tension of the TI's so no super high tension flats like Fenders or Jamersons. Can you guys suggest me some medium tension lowish mids flats? Right now I'm leaning toward D'addario Chromes. Appeciate it!!!!! EDIT: a question, less mids=less growl?
