I have always used Fender strings after upgrading from Ernie Ball. This is the first time I use flatwounds and I absolutely love them. I don't think I'll ever goback to roundwound.Read complete review

I have always used Fender strings after upgrading from Ernie Ball. This is the first time I use flatwounds and I absolutely love them. I don't think I'll ever goback to roundwound.

These string are smooth to the touch and as a result my playing has improved. Since they are smooth, they are easier to clean and stay clean longer.

The tone quality is very different from the other type of strings. It is a deepl, warmer sound and not so bright or metally sound. This may be a little wierd because I play punk, indie, and post-punk. So, this will give your bass a very different sound but it will add a layer of complexity to your sound. I love digging in and playign low on the finger board and making everything shake with added deep end because of the strings. I used to love playing high but now I'm all over the fretboard.

                If you have never tried Flats all I can say is do it now. You will not be sorry. These strings took my Fender P bass from "pretty good" to "Down right Impressive". No finger noise and sliding around is effortless. I don't know if I can go back to round wounds after trying these. I play classic rock and country with a 3 piece band and these strings fit the bill perfectly.

                  Tried the flats on another dudes Jazz fretless and fell in love. Put them on my P-bass and can't get over the feel, or the tone!!! This was just want I needed. Will probably never go back to rounds. I can do things with this bass now that the original rounds couldn't do. Sounds like a bass should, deep, rich, warm, no zing! I can't stop playing!!!
