Normally, I would just experiment with different strings and if it doesn't work out, oh well. Just buy a different set. But at the price tag these are, I'd like to know a little bit in advance from those that play them. It's for a G&L SB-2 with those hot MFD pickups and I just want to know if it will completely de-fang that bass and take all of the aggressiveness away, cuz that's not what I'm looking for. I just want to tame the pickups a bit and I like the feel of flats. What doth the TB Mind hive say?
