I can get a set of D'Addario Chromes fairly easily here in Ireland. Without the €15.00 post and packaging charges that Thomann apply! I play mainly Country with an Irish flavour, so would these strings give me the Country/Upright Bass sounds that I hope to achieve. The bass is strung with the roundwounds that were fitted in the factory. To my ears, they sound a bit 'zippy' and are hard on my fingers. I use a home made foam damper at the bridge to reduce the zippiness.
I asked a similar question several months ago.. The many responses only showed that most available flatwound string sets have their adherents, all of which showed that flats will work on a P-Bass, but I ended up confused by the responses and did nothing about changing from the rounds.
Thanks in advance guyys.
