    1. Do they taper at the bridge.
    (saw a picture of one string and looked as if it did)

    2. Do they mellow considerably with age (very bright).

    1. No. (Trying to attach a photo, but it's too large.)
    2. Yes. This was my first set of flats, and I couldn't believe how bright they were at first, but they are mellowing out nicely.

    How long does it take before they start to mellow out?I just put them on my MIM P bass & they are very bright.

    I've always heard that these and D'addario chromes are the brightest flats. How long they take to mellow depends on a lot of factors. Mainly how many hours you put into playing them and your skin chemistry.

    I have had my first set of these exact strings on my P-bass for 3+ months now. They have mellowed out considerably, the tone knob was used a lot for about a month, then...a buttery feel / sound came 'round. It is a rosewood fretboard. Now to see how long they stay in the comfort zone
