: 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!!

:HI SUIT MAN.I think that bass will always sound muddy with either new flat strings or round wounds since there is only one farty humbucker near the neck, and more importantly, a 30 inch scale. By the way, are your tuning keys flat like a fender or chrome looking Shaller types? Steve
