    Comments about GHS M3050 Precision Flatwound Bass Strings Medium:

    These strings are very tightly focused on the fundamental tone. Over and undertones are there but are diminished/subdued. They are very solid in their attack and have great punch. They give you that classic Motown/Stax sound especially so if you put them on a Fender Precision bass.

    Flatwounds have higher tension than rounds and hexcore is higher than round. GHS Precision Flats have a hex core and are quite high in tension. Don't be alarmed if you need a pro set-up and a tweek of the truss rod.

    Once played in, they hold tune very well. The set is slightly unbalanced at first, but again once played in they balance out quite nicely. They are well polished and play beautifully. They will last for years if you keep them clean.

    Comments about GHS M3050 Precision Flatwound Bass Strings Medium:

    Somewhat inconsistent quality, but will continue using these. The sound settles in after about 4-6 hours of use. Intonation is great. Like the fidelity of strings, but notice slight flaws not caught by manufacturer.

      Comments about GHS M3050 Precision Flatwound Bass Strings Medium:

      I changed from rounds to these flats and my P bass sounds warm and mellow, and they also play bright and snappy when the music demands. I play blues, country and rock with picks and fingers. I will always use these flat strings from now on.

        Play as hard as you can with your fingers effortlessly. Strings are slick not like regular strings. Good tone and fun to play.

        Awesome!

        By Jon Gerten

        from Michigan

        Comments about GHS M3050 Precision Flatwound Bass Strings Medium:

        I bought these strings because our Fender P Bass at our church was sounding really poppy. We could not control the tone like we were hoping too. We have a digital board and all the effects needed and we still felt as if the bass was lacking. So i bought some flatwounds to try and even out the tone. Man was that a good decision! Our bass players love the tone and also love the playability of the flatwounds by GHS. Great set of strings!

        Nice product, well priced!

        Comments about GHS M3050 Precision Flatwound Bass Strings Medium:

        Great flatwound string!!!
        I've played bass for 30+ years and never used flatwounds on an electric before. I tried this set because of good reviews and price on a 1957 RI Precision bass - they are great, super smooth and a great sound.
        The E string did have a lot of rough patches on it - emailed GHS directly and they sent a free replacement. Great customer service, and I'm sure these things happen from time to time.
        Great vallue

        Great flats

        By TopEnd

        from New England

        Comments about GHS M3050 Precision Flatwound Bass Strings Medium:

        These flats produce a beautiful full, deep tone across the spectrum from low to mid and high. No undue string tension, great on the fingers, and also great on my jazz bass. I still get the definition and edge of jazz, but mellowed down a bit. They're great, and the price is great. BE CAREFUL to order the longest set if you have a string-thru-body bridge.

        Great strings!

        By K-Funk

        from Lapeer, MI

        Comments about GHS M3050 Precision Flatwound Bass Strings Medium:

        I've been using roundwounds on my P-bass for a while now, and never really got the tone I was after. So after hearing Ben Kenney uses these, I ran out and bought some. They sound THICK! It's just deep, smooth, sexy bass. If you're into sexy smooth bass, ala Jamerson, go for these!
