Hiya, with all this talk about flatwound I've gone and bought a pair for one of my basses, while they sound like they should, the 3 piece band Im in - I sometimes have to have a more "full" sound - not dissing flawound but this band's sound just doesn't call for it. I've tried rotosound swingbass's, Dr highbeams, DR red devils, D'addario's. last I tried the red devils - and while I like the sound of these strings I'm bummed that the coating falls off after like 1-2 gigs. it might be acid/sweat from hands. It also seems like the low B string is a bit too boomey - not something I've noticed with any other brand. so my question is: the best set of 5 strings ? roundwound and at least extra long scale - preferably super long scale ( so I can string through body on my läkland) it has to have some zing, not overly bright though. of course even tension is a plus. I'm thinking I don't mind paying that extra to get a string that fufills these needs. so what I'm really looking for is the best. not the best for the price.
