I am a bass player in an instrumental post-rock trio. I have been using, and love, flatwound strings for years. I do a great deal of slides, pickoffs and such. I often use these techniques to build soundscapes and swells. It is important that my clumsy fingers aren't captured in the sound - hence flatwounds.
I have recently wanted to dig in a bit more with some of the stuff we are working on these days. Any suggestions on string types that allow a bit more growl, but still keep the finger contact out of the sound?
