I was looking through the strings thread about trying to get new strings. I bought a Bella Fina Chinese bass (not that great) when I entered college, and it came outfitted with some CHEAP CHEAP strings. The tone is atrocious. Its got a dull thud of an attack, and the E,A,D get almost no overtones. The bass is VERY boomy. I don't know what kind of strings they are, but they haven't been changed in 5 years, and have never sounded that great. I don't have a lot of cash. In the new set of strings I'd like a more classic jazz sound, flexibility, and a bit of speed. I just do blue grass for money, and wind up with 5-7 gigs a month with practices during the weeks. This puts a lot of strain on my tendons, especially in the cold weather. I was looking at Corelli 370s, but really don't know what they sound like outside of text descriptions. I'm not sure how to apply the information about the strings in the string mega thread, so I'm not sure what would fit my needs. Recommendations?
