      Comments about GHS M3050 Precision Flatwound Bass Strings Medium:

      Life long roundwound user and have been very happy with GHS Boomers but decided to give flatwounds a try as I primarily play Blues now and was looking for a deeper tone. Installed these on my Jazz bass and was instantly rewarded with the tone I was looking for. Warm and deep, but still bright enough to cut through the mix. Added benefit is no more string squeaking when sliding into a note. Great strings and I'll get a set for my G&L L2500 next and see how the work with an active set up. Too bad I'll have to buy them somewhere else though as MF doesn't stock them.

            Great tight strings that have a fine old school feel and sound. They will only get better with age. Love them and will purchase for all my basses.

            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.

              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.

                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!
