      Comments about D'Addario ECB82 Chromes Flatwound Medium Bass Strings:

      This is the first time I have had flatwounds on a bass and I absolutely love it. There is a loss of "pop" of roundwound strings but I can easily compensate for that with the tone control and the controls on my amp. I love the sound of the strings and would definitely recommend these if you are looking at getting some new strings.

          Comments about D'Addario ECB82 Chromes Flatwound Medium Bass Strings:

          These were a little metallic sounding when I first put them on. But after a couple of days and a retuning, they have become warm and sensual.

            The Flatwound strings seem to be easier on the fingers and have a better tone. I don't play professional, but they seem to be a better choice for me.

              These are great strings if you are not a thumb pluck bassist. They are smooth and even growl a little bit. I have them on a fretless Jazz Bass. Perfect combo.

              Very nice sounding bass strings. I"ve used round wounds until now, I'll most likely never go back. Nice bright tones, no string zing, good for any style of music.

                Comments about D'Addario ECB82 Chromes Flatwound Medium Bass Strings:

                Needed to finally break down and replace my expensive Thomastik Infeld flats on my Fender Jazz and didn't want to pay the megadollar in doing so- ordered my 1st set of ECB82 Chromes and I must say they are almost identical. Smooth feel and excellent tone. Definately worth the money, based off the previous set of high cost strings I just replaced!
                Very happy with the purchase!!

                  Strings are like playing style, there is no perfect one for everybody but for me, they are all that I use. These flat chromes are like my favorite bass, I may try something different but I always know what I have waiting that I can count on. My jazz bass with these chrome flats. I play everything from oldies, classic, southern rock, country, blues. With a little tone tweaking, you can get the sound you are after. These strings also produce the best sustain that I have ever found.

                      Very nice flats. The tension allows for ultra low action with zero fret buzz. Full tone, nice top end and lots of fundamental.

                        My last set of flat wound strings lasted 10 years. Can't complain about that. These strings, plus a good quality amp, produce a warm, full sound that's pleasant to listen to.
