I want to try changing the metal G and D strings, on my old Regal Bass, to gut. It is a dreadnought style bass and it uses standard length 3/4 bass strings, but Im not sure just what kind of gut strings to put on. The body of the instrument being smaller than that of the standard double bass, makes the G and D a little to bright for me. My goal is to get a warmer richer sound out of the higher end.

Can anyone help or suggest what I might try?
