    now here
    Hello All,

    A bit of background information, going to be using a Spector NS-5H2 and a Fender AVRI 63'
    going through D.I. (Radial JDI) and a Darkglass Microtubes X7

    I play in an originals Rock Fusion band I'll be using tapping, double thumping, extremely fast runs, chords and slapping. I only play fingerstyle will not be using a pick.

    My signal will go through a bunch of pedals depending on passages and songs but those will be (i play synth as well using pedals):

    > MXR BOD
    > Meris Enzo
    > Meris Ottobit Jr.
    > Source Audio Manta Filter
    > Team Awesome Fuzz Machine
    > Retro-Sonic Phaser
    > Alexander Sky Fi
    > Darkglass Vintage Microtubes

    I have the following options:

    > For the 5 Strings Spector my choices are:

    Sadowsky Bright Nickel Blue 45-130 tapered
    Fodera Medium Nickel 45-125
    DR Sunbeams Medium 45-125
    DR Hi-Beams Medium 45-125

    > For the Fender I am in a huge dilemma cause on one song which is almost a ballad I know flats would sound great especially that some parts I play two step feel walking lines and there are some jamerson-esque 16th note lines as well

    but on other tracks I need my P with rounds cause it really really cuts through and sounds old school at least through my Aguilar TH500 and I did get that from the Darkglass pedals too.

    so the options are:

    D'Addario Tapewounds
    Fender Flatwounds
    DR Pure Blues Victor Wooten 40-95

    Easy. Spector gets Hi Beams.

    Can't comment on the Fender. I'd just use the Spector for everything :)
