Anyone tried the DM Flats? What's your take on these?
I'm not sure if the ones i have are the Persision Flats, but about a year ago i bought a set of Dean Markley Flats. I've had them for a year and i really like them. they go on and off of a bunch of my basses and right now they are on my P-Bass, and i really like them. But this is the only set i've ever owned or played so i don't have much to compare them too. Hope this helps at least a little.
I believe that the DM flats are the origin of the term "Dead Markleys". They are very dark and thuddy. Not exactly my cup of tea, but, as always YMMV. I think that Robert Mercurio of Galactic uses and endorses them.
Same thing here .... I tried a set and they are dark, muddy, thumpy, and basically dead sounding. Took them off 2 minutes after I put them on
On the other hand .... I love Thomastik-Infeld Flats and D'Addario "Chromes"
Thanks for your input guys! I temporarily swayed by the DM ad (hype) I saw in the mag. A fellow pitter and a TB'r sent me audio clips of the TI JF-345's.............so that's where i'm headin'.
Good choice and Good Luck.
