: Hi Josh,
: I used to play Rotosound Flatwounds on my Jazz Bass. They were great for the
: blues band I was in at the time, but they have a much deeper sound than the
: roundwound strings, and you lose the ring, that is sometimes critical to your
: sound. Vicky is correct that they are easier on your fingers...LOL.
: Since getting back together with my childhood musician friends, and returning
: to playing classic rock, I have returned to roundwound strings.
: Go to a music store, find two basses stringed with both flatwound & roundwond
: strings. Plug em both in, and select the stings that sound the best to YOU!
: HAVE FUN!
