I was wondering if it was better to use orchestral or solo tuning strings for jazz bass playing. I just started playing bass this past fall semester, and I was using some kind of orchestral tuned strings. Then I started studying with my bass professor and he used solo guage strings because it responded easier. I noticed that it did respond a lot easier when I played it and I didn't have to fight as hard to play, but, unlike my professor, I couldn't get a loud volume. Any comments?
