I was looking for flatwounds for my USA Fender P Bass. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, as I had always used round wounds, but wow, was I impressed! First thing I noticed was the great sound. Obviously new strings will always have a sparkle to them, but I wasn't expecting flatwounds to sounds so lively. Of course some of that sparkle fades after time, but does so in a smooth way and the nice harmonics and overall rich tones remain. They are so easy to play and almost buttery smooth on the fingers and their slinky nature makes bending easy, which is important to me. I think I've found my bass strings of choice. A friend of mine put a set of these on his squire P Bass and what an improvement it made.
I was probably just unlucky but after stringing up my new Jazz Bass I found that the D string was buzzing like mad. I checked the frets and intonation and they were fine. So I replaced it with an old roundwound and that played fine so I knew it was not the bass setup. After putting the flatwound D string back on again to check I was not imagining it, buzz buzz buzz again.
Its a shame but these things happen. I think I will stick to Rotosounds or Fender flatwounds as they are just as cheap and do give the sound you want. Hope you are more lucky than me :) Hopefully I will be able to return to thomann for a refund or replacement. Its not their fault at all and I think they will be able to check with the manufacturer to see what went wrong.
