: Yes, Josh, I've put a set on my Aria ProII. They feel smoother and are
: easier on the fingers. Apparently they last longer than roundwound.
: Go for it!
My bass teacher also says that they won't tear up your frets so much. By the way, I use d'Addario flats and Fender flats. I replaced a cheap set of rounds on one bass, liked it so much within days I took off a nearly-new set of Markely rounds on my other bass and put on flats. I like 'em!! Also, I personally tend to generate extraneous string noise and the flats help keep that down.
