Dream about flatwounds

    I had a dream I was playing flatwounds, rotosound 77s to be specific. I was playing Hesitation Blues when the wrap on the string burst apart into hundreds of metal rings, revealing the core of the string to be a thick metal rod. I kept playing, the rod had a nice tone.
    Maybe I think about gear too much...

    Please share whatever you're taking, because I'm getting dreams about trying to put strings on a bass (fish) and it just keeps screaming at me to level up my Mesmer in Guild Wars 2. I blame Fender.

    And Rotosound flats are pretty nice (to keep this about strings). So far, they're my 2nd favorite flatwound. GHS being my 1st choice.

    But who cares! When I was a newbee on bass, I had a dream about strings too. They consisted of solid steel rods, welded to the bridge. They hurt my fingers badly. Everybody could play them, except me...

    Since I started playing bass, I have yet to have any gear related dreams. But in my early days as a drummer, I used to dream about playing with sticks made of solid stainless steel. Frustrating.

    They were Rotosound 77LDs, 45-105. First set of strings I ever bought!
    My buddy has them on an ibanez artcore, and they still sound good. But the wrap on the G string started developing huge gaps in it
    so I replaced it with a roundwound I had lying around.
    Funny, I use GHS flats now too...
