I resumed playing both acoustic bass and bass guitar after not player for more than 20 years,so my knowledge base is obsolete as far as styles and instruments are concerned.
I bought a Yamaha RBX260 because it was cheap($200new,w/gigbag)and I only wanted a starter instrument. I am satified with it,but i think the factory installed strings are weird. Each string seems to have its own quality;theG is nasal and lacks sustain. Does anyone know what brand strings Yamaha puts on this bass Also,can anyone recommend a good set of flatwounds? I play folk,C&W,gospel and jazz standards-I need a smooth,well defined BASS tone across all strings. Medium gauge;I've got strong hands(14 ring size,and I tend to get my tone by pizzing very hard with the right hand.

thanks in advance,
Francis X
