hi;

I have been a guitar player for a few years. I just got a bass to record with, it's a '68 gibson EB-0, but I think it still has the original strings on it!!

I don't know much about bass strings, but this bass sounds a bit muddy with the tone control anywhere but on "10". what would you guys suggest? roundwounds? I know flatwounds supposedly sound duller.....

FWIW, I'm using a '70's tube SVT head w/Traynor 4x10 cab, has 4x150 watt emminence speakers in it. top-of-my-head favourite bass sounds are bob marley, led zeppelin, police, pink floyd, meters, yes.

thx in advance for any help!!
