      Comments about Ernie Ball 2810 Flatwound 5-String Bass Strings Set:

      I bought these for a new 5 string as well as a 4 string set of the same brand. These replaced Fender flatwound lights. These have a good sound and feel great. Length wise, I did not have a problem (Cort A5 Custom, string through body) However, both sets seemed to fit really low in the nut, lower than the Fenders even though they are the same size (except the D string on these is actually bigger). This required some bridge adjustment to avoid fret buzz. Aside from that, they do have a good sound, so I would recommend them if they fit your bass. Personally, I'm going back to Fenders.

            Best strings ever. I have used these for years and made the mistake of trying a new brand (not flat wound) and that was terrible. These strings have a good full tone and not the buzzing, plinking, twangy sound of round wound strings. Try these string and I promise you will never go back.

            Comments about Ernie Ball 2810 Flatwound 5-String Bass Strings Set:

            I have these on three basses and it has vastly improved the sound on each of them. They are smooth and easy to play like they should be. I have had no problems with their length on a 34" scale, they actually have great tension for a 34" scale bass. On a 35, they may be short, but they are perfect on my 3 34's.

            Good strings for shorter scale

            By 

            from Bay Area

            Comments about Ernie Ball 2810 Flatwound 5-String Bass Strings Set:

            These are nice strings, but be warned they are shorter scale and with most 5 string basses these just won't be long enough. I tried them on my G&L L-2500 and they were just a little to short. I'll use them on my shorter P-bass 4 string they will fit that and I'll only be out one string. If you don't need the extra length, these are priced good.

            Good strings, but...

            By

            Comments about Ernie Ball 2810 Flatwound 5-String Bass Strings Set:

            Typical Ernie Ball quality... Good strings. My only complaint... If the low B string is flat wound I'm Jaco Pastorius. The package says ".130 flatwound", but it looks and sounds very roundwound!Hopefully Ernie Ball will remedy this in the future.

            Yes, got the new ones direct from EB. They bent over backwards to make it right. Used figure 8 method to wind the strings. Worked great. Sound great, are smooth and easy to play. Forget my first review, those defective strings were a fluke and I know that won't happen again.
