Great sound and feel
BennyD, 29.03.2014
The EB2804 is a little pricy, but they are worth every penny. Having used Fender string for years and wanted to try a different brand the EB was a perfect fit. I uses the EB flat wound on my Jazz, precision and Rickenbacker and I will never go back. The sound is warm and filling and the flatwound gives a great smooth feeling and easy to play for a longer session. Try them out!

Ernie Ball vs D'addario Chromes
2778997, 26.09.2020
Comparing both strings, the D'addarios articulate a kind of easier, but the articulation is very much the same playing or louder. They like a kind of too much, "tank" strings. The Ernie Balls feel to me more natural strings, no tanks, and they feel more elastic/flexible than the D'addarios.

De bonnes grosses cordes.
François524, 15.07.2011
Je sais que nombre d'entre vous, chers amis bassistes, se posent des questions sur les cordes à filet plat . Car finalement elles ne sont pas aussi répandues que ça. On les trouve principalement sur les basses fretless.
Outre le son qu'elles procurent, elles ont le gros avantage de ne pas trop marquer la touche. Elles agressent beaucoup moins la touche que les filets ronds. Moi j'ai monté ces cordes sur une basse frettée, très réputée dans ce domaine puisqu'il s'agit d'une Rickenbacker 4001 de 1976.
La différence avec les filets ronds est évidente. D'abord au toucher main gauche (je suis droitier) au début on a tendance à "glisser", on ne maîtrise plus trop ses déplacements.
Sur ma basse, l'effet est surtout intéressant au médiator. L'attaque est différente, le son plus rond. Cela vient aussi du fait que c'est un gros tirant, on peut attaquer franchement.
L'inconvénient du gros tirant, c'est que la main gauche fatigue plus vite et que les parties rapides sont mois aisées.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
