DR Legend Flats question
Just put a set 45-105 on my p bass(top loading). I've been playing round wounds for quite a bit and been settled on D'Addario nickel rounds that are a few years old. The DR is my first set of flats and so far I'm loving how it feels and how it sounds after one day of playing. It's tuned standard and I'm comfortable with the tension so far.
However, there is this thing that bothers me. The entire string feels silky smooth, but near the bridge saddle it looks almost as if the the core has been stretched and the wounding is pulled apart ever so slightly, it's not like the core is visible or anything extreme but it's definitely visible and you can definitely feel it's roughness. It stretches about an inch off of the bridge saddle and applies to all four strings.
Is this a normal flatwound thing or did I purchase a bad pack of strings? Any advice will be greatly appreciated
