    Has to be said though, the Zoom's built in paraEQ and and Fishman Pre models on the B3 are really useful, and the high pass filter on the Fishman model is difficult to get without buying an actual HPF (eg thumpinator, etc).#


    Sorry for the thread hijack, but which pre is the fishman on the B3? I don't see it here.

    "Chromes" is the brand name for D'Addario's range of flatwound strings: http://www.daddario.com/DADProductFamily.Page?ActiveID=3768&familyid=18&sid=bb654faa-90e8-4174-87c0-e84ba40ab08b

    Probably where my confusion is coming from. I use D'Addario NYXL on most of my basses, and D'Addario 'Chrome /Flats' on my P-Bass. Think I'll play them in a bit longer. Maybe giving your suggestion a try at some point chris_b

    Thanks for the help guys. Still learning after 50 years of playing. :biggrin:

  6. I've a P-Bass that I put either Chromes or Flats on about two years ago. I am not sure which I put on the bass. I'd like to try the 'other' ones...Can anyone link me to a couple of images please of these two types? So that I may get an idea of which I have on the bass at present.

    Adding an image in case that helps anyone identify what I already have on the bass.
