How do Honeys compare (tension and sound) to...
Posted 02 December 2011 - 02:38 PM
I guess they are higher tension than Silver Slaps, but how different is the sound?
Any info much appreciated.

Have you thought about the orch Honeys? They have the braided core and are supposed to be more bowable than the jazz Honeys.

I think I've just confirmed to myself that I need two basses - I really like both the modern and trad sounds and I want both. Would still like to try Super Silvers though, I think the Silver Slaps are a bit too floppy for me but to be fair they are great to slap and bloody loud.

So, how do Honeys compare tension wise? If Weedwackers are 1 and hybrids are a 10...where would the Honeys be?
Any input would be much appreciated.

I've replied to your pm, but just for reference I'll post here too...
I'd say that the honeys would be about 4/10 on that scale, though it's a surprisingly subjective question, and the stop length and the angle over the bridge will both have an effect on the tension.
The honeys probably woun't have quite as much growl as the hybrids as they are designed to simulate gut, but they do have some, along with a nice warmth to the sound. It's also worth bearing in mind that they are a little thicker than most strings.
