Great Sounding Flats

James K., 22.01.2018
I bought these to use for more traditional styles. Strings sound great, a lot more life in them than other types of flatwounds, you can even get good harmonics and they have a good dry fundamental but still have brightness to the sound (these would be great for recording - no string noise).
I did have to make truss rod adjustments and reset the intonation as i had previously used D'addario EXL170 roundowounds on the instrument which are lower tension (D'addario always give the tension of the set on the back of the pack so you can see the tension difference in sets for yourself).
My only issue with this set of strings is the winding at the ball end on the low B was slightly messy (normal to see on most strings to be honest) and it was a little bit of a struggle to get the string sitting properly in the bridge, however knowing that most pros leave flatwounds on for months/years means i wont be changing these so often, so all in all not too much of an issue for me.

Tough as old boots

15.01.2015
These were purchased to replace the skin-shredding, finger-burning, serrated-edged standard strings that came with a brand new five string fretless bass, and they certainly help the comfort of playing live ceilidh music at speed. The sound, too, is a more rounded and satisfying one.
