Hey folks. Do any of you put any black nylons on fretted instruments? I do. I have found it to be the best sound ever. I keep flatwounds on my P's, but other instruments (Jazz and a MusicMan) have black strings. Back in 2002, when I bought my Jazz, Black nylons were a necessity, for every regular roundwound (yes, I know the black nylon covers the round) that I put on their kept popping (I can't put flats on my tiny Jazz neck). So I experimented w/Black nylons, and not only did they stay on (have been on for three years), but it's the best sound I ever heard. I recently bought a Musicman SUB, and put Black strings. The sound is bigger (on the Jazz, too!), and it gets rid of the tin people complain about. Just my observation. Oh, yeah, I do keep flatwounds on the P Basses.
