Good flatwounds for a fretless?
I recently bought a fretless with regular roundwound strings and I've found that they scratch at my neck considerably (I'm sure this is common, but regardless) and I've never really played a bass with flatwounds. So which flatwounds could get me a real smooth, sort of upright sound? I play jazz and fusion on a BassMods K44V fretless.

Try some D'addario tapewounds.

Or some nylon tape wounds. I have used Fender, and really liked them.

I use TI Jazz Flats on my SX Fretless Jazz. They're expensive, but I really like the sound feel. A little livelier than some other flats I've tried.

La Bellas, GHS Precisions, Chromes, etc.
Plenty of choices. It all depends on your tonal requirements.

I've used TIs, GHS Precision, Fender, D'Addario flats and Tapes by Fender, GHS, and LaBella. They all had their good points. Take your pick.

Get the tapewounds.

On Fretless I have used
GHS Precision Flats (.040 - .095) for lower-tension feel, thuddy sound.
Fender 9050 Flatwounds (.050-.100) medium-tension, more treble than the GHS Flats.
Two very different string sets. Experiment, if you can afford the time and $$.

I was a big CHROMES advocate for years.. But i recently got some Fender 9050s And i like them more. They are slightly less tension than the chromes and seem to growl a little more.. Great strings and real low price too...

Thomastik Infeld Jazz Flats. I use them on my fretted basses as well. They play and sound awsome!

D'addario half rounds
