    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.

    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
