Hi guys. I've never played flats before and from my research here, the general response of Flats is that they are less zingy with alot of thump. Just the kind of sound I'm going for. Secondly, my favourite local guitar store only has Dean Markley Flatwounds. I did a little search on them and found out that not much were said about them. Maybe I've missed some threads. Anyways, does anyone here knows a thing or two about them? Thanks!
