String types

Had been using stock Fender NPS on my short-scale Jaguar, and recently switched to GHS Bass Boomers. Really like the deeper, beefier tone as well as the added punch volume-wise. The added sustain is also nice, though I will say they're less forgiving when it comes to imprecise fingering.

PFFFT you're not a bassist! short-scale?? gimme a break if you are too tiny to play bass, dont play one cut down, do you wear childrens clothes too?
As one of my former sergeant-majors used to be fond of saying, “Assumption is the mother of all f**k-ups.”. Just because the Jag is the one I mentioned definitely does not mean it's the only one I own.

We don't need comments like this. If you can't be helpful, go elsewhere, or at least keep it shut. Nothing wrong with a short-scale bass.

easy there, tiger. this is a friendly place, no reason to get your panties in a bunch.

to each their own!
I just picked up a short scale Fender BG32 acoustic and it desperately needs new strings, any suggestions?!? Thanks!
Sorry - I'm no help. I've never played an acoustic bass.

A bit of time on TalkBass has me thinking I'd look into Thomastik-Infeld Acousticore stings. They're designed for an acoustic bass, not an electric.


Cheers
Find you some nice flatwound. They are a bit mire expensive but feel and sound amazing
I recently purchased a Fender blacktop series jazz bass. Any suggestions as to a good set of strings to keep on stand by? I'm just learning and will be playing with the praise team at church.
