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.

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

    I have been using these for years and they haven't let me down. I just recently replaced a set I have had on my bass for years. I only replaced it because we are in the recording process and I felt my tone was lacking a little from the ancient strings. The new set feels great, but They will really start to shine after the newness wears off in a week or so.

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

      Been using D'Addario bass strings since 1980. Won't use anything else. Fat tone. These strings don't go dead ever. The flatwounds are thunderous and punchy. Want a sixties vibe? These are the 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.
