: My five year old son is learning to play bass (doing very good on mine) but i have a
: 35" scale bass. I have ordered a short scale bronco for him, but I wan't to get a set of flatwounds.
: I have flat wounds on mine, and i love them, plus I think they would be eisier of his fingers.
: Can anybody tell me if anybody makes a flatwound set in short scale? or can I just use a regular length set,
: and just wind them 10,000 times?
: Anybody have any experience with kids playing bass that they want to share?

Hey, Mark!

Don't put a regular length set of strings on a Bronco - You'll get weird harmonics!!!

Good Luck,
