    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!

    Copper underlays? What does that mean exactly? Are they like daddario exp reds wrapped in white (clear) tape?

    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?
