: Has Steve ever said in interviews, etc exactly why he uses flatwounds? Isn't it the "norm" for rock/metal bassists to use brighter roundwounds? Aren't flatwound strings dull sounding? (I don't mean dull in a negative way...you know what I mean)
: Hey thanks
Why he uses flatwounds I never heard, but I did read about him having a problem with his finger skin becoming softer because of his excessive sweating (well, the man does move around a lot onstage). So, perhaps he has very sensitive finger skin and the smoother feel or flats suits him better. Just a thought. Buena suerte and keep your bass up front in the mix,
