L-2000-Favorite settings/strings

Postby MickeyOne » Sat Oct 27, 2012 9:43 am

My '81 L-2000e is my go to bass right now, especially for rock. However, I am never completely happy with tone, going back and forth on the amount of treble, mids, etc. I use rounds for flexibility and am constantly changing them. In the past I have tried Sunbeams, Duncan Nickels, Naked Nickels (.50), Lo-Riders, TI Super Alloys, Markley Blue Steel and others.

Presently, I am using D'addario Nickel Half rounds (light) and like the sound but still getting used to feel.

My favorite on board settings are both pickups, Series (I have the single coil option and use it) and passive. Bass 100% open, treble 30%.

What strings and settings to you use and why?

I usually use D'Addario EX170's but I recently just tried a set of DR Black Beauties on another bass and I'm thinking they would probably sound really good on the L2K.

DR Hi Beams - just the right balance of lows and highs for me. LaBella 760RMs are a close 2nd.
