    Comments about Ernie Ball P02814 Super Slinky Flatwound Bass Strings:

    These strings don't come close to the punch of chrome round wounds. But they are super fun to play. I found with quite a bit of adjusting on the amp I could get a sound I could live with.

        Comments about Ernie Ball P02814 Super Slinky Flatwound Bass Strings:

        Compared to Chromes, these have less tension and are more consistent. I had issues with the E and G string of the Chromes sounding dead compared to the A and D. I've only had these strings for about a month, so I'm not positive how long they last. If their lifespan is decent, I'll definitely move from Chromes to these.

          Best strings I've ever played since (73) made a new bass out of mine.
          These are not your Daddy's flats. They are for a brave new world with Lots of sounds that to need to be gotten from a single source that would be the the cobalt flats.
