I picked up a set of rotosound 77's (.45-.105) and I was wondering if I could use the E and A strings from the rotosound set and my current DR black beautys (.45-.105) D and G strings so I could get the sound of flatwounds for normal playing (I usually stick to the E and A anyways) and use the black beauty's to preserve my slap/pop tone that you can't really get with flats. Has anyone ever tried this? Will it sound like complete shit?
Don't see why it would.
nope, not at all. Give it a go
Perfectly acceptable. Les Claypool says so.
