    Jamareo Artis (bassist for Bruno Mars) often uses the Fender Pino Palladino signature P bass, which I think typically comes strung with flatwounds. Can anyone tell from this video if his strings are flats or rounds on his Pino Palladino P bass?

    I have no idea, but dude is a BEAST! I know from experience how hard it is to play and dance at the same time. Much respect to him.

    Sounds like flats to me, but I could be wrong.

    ... and yes, that is some tasty playing.

    Yeah, there's just nothing negative to say about the guy. He's incredible.
    I'm thinking those are flats as well, but I'd like to get some people to confirm that.

    Anyone ever find out what strings Jamereo had on his Pino?
    I saw something recently where he was talking about DR strings.
    I can't decide if they are round or flat....:meh:
