Just want to say how pleased I am with the set of Payson groundwounds I just received - I am new to Dingwall guitars (and this forum) but fell in love with a Combustion 5er and had to have it about a month ago . . . been playing the strings it shipped with, and think they sound great, but have always been partial to flats. So, it was great to find out about the Payson line of strings made specifically for fanned fret basses.
Just put them on yesterday (they fit perfectly, of course) and went to rehearsal. I'm currently playing through a Eden WT-405 head into a sealed 2X15. I would also typically run a 2X10 in parallel for a little more definition (Or would in theory, but haven't tried this setup yet, as the 2X10 needs to be re-coned, and I just acquired the 2X15 . . .) Anyway, the flats sounded so great to my ears, felt great in my hands, and just made me generally feel good about life, the universe, the state of the economy, and my purpose in being here
And that low B string . . . I am just . . . wow. What an instrument.
So, thanks. I'm heading to CT next week to play a series of shows with the Christopher Robin Band, and backline will be provided. No idea what that's gonna look like, but I feel confident that whatever the situation, my Dingwall will prevail!
