: Does anyone here use Elixir bass strings? I know they're supossed to
: be pretty good.(They better be @ $45.00 a set) It says that they have

: roundwound? Also, has anyone tried Thomastik strings? I'm really just
: interested in flatwounds. Any report will be appreciated.
I've used the Elixir strings on my fretless and they sound great. For my fretted basses I've been going back-n-forth with the Fodera and Ken Smith blacks. They seem to maintain their original sound longer than most of the others I've tried. The Ken Smith blacks have a very distinct low B that I have yet to find in any other string. While the Fodera (Victor Wooten Series) has a more hi-fi sound. Thats my 2cents. Good luck and keep it on the down low.
