    At the moment they only have Black Nylon in Double Ball End. I will see if they can do a one-off set!

    Are you kidding me? I literally put Deep Talkin Flats on my Squier Precision yesterday (from BSO, of course)! Sigh.. These are on my list of strings to try now. Grr!

    Saw a mention of these on Facebook.

    Are these okay with magnetic pickups, or are they for piezo-only use?

    Doesn't "warmer and more supple tone" pretty much describe their Black Nylon Tapes? :confused:

    I think a set of these may find their way onto my Ibanez AEB5E acoustic.

    Bahhh I thougght these would bring an end to my string searching but then I noticed they don't come in beatle bass size :/

    Could I get by wth using the .105's or would that put to much strain on the neck? Otherwise, any idea if they'll be coming out with a beatle bass set anytime soon?

    Oh I know they're tapewounds. But I thought I'd ask anyway - thinkin' maybe you'd slip up and tell us about these new mystery flats!:D

    Are the copper tapewounds roundwound underneath?
