    Got my first Warwick last night! I'm used to using D'Addario Chromes......wondering how they would sound on this bass? :bassist:
    Anyone have any advice? Thanks!

    I've used TI flat on my Corvette. It worked really well. I was told by my drummer that it sound so organic (woody) that it sound like an upright bass. It has very storng mid frequency emphasis. I loved it.

    I was out of my usual Fender 9050M flats, so I just put a set of Rotosound Steve Harris flats on my FNA. So far, so good - more aggressive sounding than my 9050s.

    I used flats on my two warwicks, streamer stage ii, and infinity sn. At first ghs, then t.i.s. I'll never go back. Punch, presence, and it mellows the brightness of warwicks...

    TI flats on my Warwick Streamer Pro.

    Yeah, it mellows Warwick's inherent brightness.

    i have Rotosound flats on my thumb. they work great to mellow out the tone and give it a vintage/thump that is just great.

    I use flats on my Warwick Corvette now, much more punch, lots of growl still, less brightness with an even more apparent mid and low mid emphasis. I really like them, I think I'll stick with flats, chords have a cool sound to them as well with flats. The only problem is with the fenders I use I don't like the tension on the E, anyone have any suggestions for strings with a bit more tension on the E then the Fenders. I want to try Chromes... DaBassMan give them a try and give us a review of them on your warwick?
