    Comments about GHS Stainless Steel Precision Flatwound Electric Bass Strings:

    I've had the same set of these on my main working bass (Precision-style bass) for about four years, and they're just now getting too dead for me to keep playing, and I just broke the A string. So now, I'm back for a new set.
    They were a little bit too clean and bright for me for about a week like any new strings, but then they totally mellowed out and darkened nicely. And the feel is buttery smooth! I had to get used to sliding on them without overshooting the fret I'm going for, because sliding is just so effortless on these! They're really a joy to play! I very highly recommend them to anyone who likes a soft, fuzzy, round bass tone. Also, they're the perfect amount of tension. Fairly low tension for flatwounds, but definitely higher tension than roundwounds.

      Comments about GHS Stainless Steel Precision Flatwound Electric Bass Strings:

      for the cost these are super nice flat wound strings. I've put them on one of my back-up jam bass. I was very happy about the way they felt and sounded. Will keep them in mind in the future.

      Best flatwounds when you need that sound

      By TimB 619

      from Cape Cod, MA

      Comments about GHS Stainless Steel Precision Flatwound Electric Bass Strings:

      I've tried many different flats on my Precision bass, and these are the best for the money. Not stiff at all, very easy to play, and yet they have a very fat, thumpy sound.If you have a string thru body bass, or a 35" scale, these will fit, no problem.If you need a great set of flatwounds, without breaking the bank, buy these. You won't regret it.

      smooth, deep

      By TopEnd

      from New England

      Comments about GHS Stainless Steel Precision Flatwound Electric Bass Strings:

      A flatwound string designed for a string-through-body bridge, full scale bass. The sound is deep and full, not 'dead' or thumpy as some have said. Mine is a 51 reissue CIJ Fender P, which with roundwounds tends to scream in the upper registers; way too bright. The GHS flats are much more consistent throughout the range of notes. Bottom end is definitely bigger. Strings feel great and did -not- appreciably increase the tension on the neck. A good value.

      Classic tone, low noise and great feel.

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about GHS Stainless Steel Precision Flatwound Electric Bass Strings:

      I was looking for the classic sound that made Precision bass the standard it is today and found it with these strings. The are litte bright when first installed, but after a few days the warm low tone comes through in spades. I have these strings on my Hot-Rod Presion Bass and play through an Ampeg BA 112 at practice and the bandmates tell me the love the sound.Also, the strings make very little, if any, noise and are easy on the fingers and fretboard. If you are looking for the warm, low classic tone, these are the strings to get.

      PrecisionPlayer

      By Soulman-PIsYI

      from Philly, PA.

      Comments about GHS Stainless Steel Precision Flatwound Electric Bass Strings:

      I got these strings to put on two P-Basses I own that have Vintage frets so I wouldn't wear them out, and also to get a more Vintage tone. These strings live up to their name, {Precision} Flats!It seems these were almost made exclusivly for a P-Bass. They are very percussive, warm, boomy, and have that old school rubber/clack thud that only flats can give you. If you don't want to wear your frets, or just want the Vintage tone, give these a try!

      Not bad for the money

      By basicmlcmc

      from los angeles

      Comments about GHS Stainless Steel Precision Flatwound Electric Bass Strings:

      I bought these strings from a local boutique guitar shop, since they were the only flatwounds they carried. I thought I would have them on temporarily, since I was actually looking for the Fender tapewounds (hard to find), but after playing them for a few months, I decided they're keepers. I replaced the roundwounds on my Eastwood Classic 4 with these. These are the smoothest, easiest metal flatwounds to play, a lot more than the Steve Harris Rotosounds I currently have on my viola bass. Nice, beefy tone, a must for semi-hollow basses.

      YOUR DADDY'S SET!

      By Brother Dave-MLJxZ

      from Albemarle NC

      Comments about GHS Stainless Steel Precision Flatwound Electric Bass Strings:

      Traditional high-tension flatwound bass sets caused me all sorts of problems so I've been using pricey "ultra-low tension made in Vienna" flats. I tried a GHS Stainless Precision set 6 months ago when they were the only non-high tension flat set available locally. I was astounded! I like the slightly higher tension of the GHS better. I'd call it medium-tension. They also sound fatter, deliver a thumpy attack with little undesirable noise and are super durable. For Motown/Stax-Volt/Atlantic covers the GHS set earns an "A+" in old-school tone without any of the drawbacks of the traditional old-school sets. Fusion & Metal players beware! This is your daddy's tone, not yours.

      smooth

      By Little Willie

      from Central Illinois

      Comments about GHS Stainless Steel Precision Flatwound Electric Bass Strings:

      I've been using these on my Ibanez for about a year now. The first thing I noticed was that rather than typical guitar strings it felt like I was playing thin metal rods. I tear up the callouses on the ends of my fingers enough with my guitar, so it's nice to have these on the bass. Through the small peavey amp I use at church they sound like any other string, but when played through something with a better frequency response the upright bass sound comes out.

      Comments about GHS Stainless Steel Precision Flatwound Electric Bass Strings:

      I bought these for a friend, and I've played them and they're fabulous. The feel is so sweet, and make playing so much more enjoyable. Zero fret buzz, and they don't kill your fingers. Perfect for any riff with sliding, because they practically do all the work for you!
