: Anybody out there ever use flat wound strings on a fretted bass? Any thoughts
: on it?
: Just curious...
I tried flatwounds on my Jazz, but did not like the 'clankiness' the less flexible flatwounds have to their sound. I am currently using Rotosound nylon wound strings on my fretless. They have more harmonics than regular flatwounds without the 'clank', they feel great to and are warmer than roundwounds. Give them a try, La Bella also make nylon outer wrap strings.
