. I love D'Addario Chromes because they are quite bright sounding for a flatwound. The set I have on one of my Jazz basses seems to be staying fairly bright with age, though to be honest it's not my "play every day" bass. I also like Rotosound SM77s for the same reason. (ie. they're bright too ...... apart from the D and G on my set, but that's another story.) I've had them on my P-bass for a couple of weeks. I've read that they lose that brightness pretty quickly, which is going to annoy me if/when that happens. Which flatwound strings do YOU find are bright and stay fairly bright for a long time? Does such a beast exist? (NB. I like the feel of flats, I know rounds are brighter!) Thanks in advance.
