Now put a piece of foam under the strings at the bridge. [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

I have one with TIs and a foam mute I made similar to the type that Mark linked to a couple weeks ago and I have a 78 toy with a BA2, dropD tuner and extra light boomers.

Just love that toy. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

The Fender 9050's are really nice. I put 'em on my Deluxe Jazz Bass and the extra bottom is great.

I'm no fan of TI flats.... a little too flabby for me**, but I have Chromes on all my basses now. The gig machine will get a block of foam as well....and I'm increasingly loving the Pbass tone...That beast I'm building for PathDoc is going to be a rumble bomb (whatever that means [smilie=fun_84.gif]

I used to put TI flats on most of my basses. Now, I prefer LaBella Deep Talkin' Flats.

I have 3 P basses at the moment. The Darkstar wears Chromes, and the two Nashes wear TIs. It works.

I like TIs on short scale basses but I like GHS flats on long scale basses.

Ive had the same sets of TIs and Chromes since the DP days. Like over priced wine, they just get better with age. [smilie=food-smiley-004.gif]

Three Ps: the Fender bitsa wears TIs, the Squiers wear Chromes, the Kingman has Fenders. The Chromes are recent, I'm really liking them. The Fender will get them too, when the TIs die. So, in about, oh, eight years? More?

Yeah. Fender flats are fairly high tension, and so are Chromes.
This is a P-type's birth right. You must not deny your bass that
which it has been eternally promised.

New basses are red. Used basses are black.

I used Chromes for a long time. Then I saw a post on FB by Ed Friedland saying he liked DR Legend Flats, so I tried some. Love them. Similar tension to Chromes, but without the clacking. The B works better too.
