I have a bass in with my tech and will be putting a set of these on it. I've never tried them so it'll be a surprise to see how they sound. They actually look like rounds but with a tighter wrap. I'd like to hear your take. Does that "round" wind still give the flat character? I've only started using SIT's some months ago and have tried Silencers, Power Steels and Power Nickels. So far, I like them, particularly the Silencers. A good bang for the buck IMO.
