    Andy Russ here from Columbus Ohio.

    I have a Dolphin Pro I 4 string and a SSII 5 string.

    As I was playing the other day, I suddenly realized that the generic sound of these bases--i.e. "The Sound of Wood"--would be greatly enhanced by the use of flatwound strings. They already sound really close to an URB in tone, if you seek that sound. I think I may becoming a convert to flats.

    I have used TI flats on a '62 RI P bass to excellent results.

    Anyone use flatwounds on their Warwicks???

    Results? Impressions?

    The only isssue being the Warwick bridge saddles, esp. on the SSII, which has slots for taperwound B and E strings.

    Thanks for your help!!!
