strings are very affordable and very supple feeling as compared
to the EUB standard, Thomastic Spirocores. D'adds and Spirocores
are much stiffer and brighter by comparison. I've built 15 EUB's ...
Great. Thank you waaaaay mas mucho, and then some.
I underscored some stuff in your message above cuz, to
me, those things underlined carry a LOT of authority !
Both "Stiff" and "Bright" are demons to me. But I had no
way of knowing if it was the [estimated] newness of my
strings, or just the nature of the D'A strings.
The Eminence is verrrry sensitive to anything touching
the strings ... like a stray finger tip headed for some
other string, or just the skin contact sound of playing
on stiff strings. String brightness only exaggerates that,
but I don't wanna EQ it all thundery just as a cover up.
BTW, I'm not even playing at maximum tension cuz I've
tuned it DGCF just like all my other basses, yet still it's
a very unyielding feel from the strings, and the G-string
has a high pitched whine instead of a nice hummmm.
