    I was a hardcore rounds-only user - until I tried these.

    If you properly EQ your bass/amp you can get that classic "round" tone you want with none of the annoying string squeak, etc. that are so annoying, but unavoidable with rounds. Yeah, amazing but true. All the tone/sonic qualities of rounds with all the advantages (easier-on-fingers, less wear and tear on frets, etc.) of flats.

    Works especially well with active basses. Also, works great by using a Tech 21 VT Bass pedal to help shape the sound

    MF occasionally uses my old billing and shipping info. Even after confirming that they have removed this from their computers. So the strings went to an old address and had to be forwarded to me. This I will try again to rectify with their customer service which is normally very good.
    Strings are excellent and if you play fretless I would suggest these over anything else out there....even the ones costing three times as much.

                      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.

                          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.
