    I just purchased a new Gibson Midtown. While the bass sounds great, I don't like the feel of roundwound strings.

    Has anyone replaced the strings on a Midtown with flatwound strings? If so, how did it affect the sound of the bass?

    No personal experience but i would imagine either d'addario chromes or ghs precision flats would sound great on a midtown... maybe a pick sound to bring out that hollow-yet-powerful sound.
