Dream about flatwounds

    I had a dream I was playing flatwounds, rotosound 77s to be specific. I was playing Hesitation Blues when the wrap on the string burst apart into hundreds of metal rings, revealing the core of the string to be a thick metal rod. I kept playing, the rod had a nice tone.
    Maybe I think about gear too much...

    Please share whatever you're taking, because I'm getting dreams about trying to put strings on a bass (fish) and it just keeps screaming at me to level up my Mesmer in Guild Wars 2. I blame Fender.

    And Rotosound flats are pretty nice (to keep this about strings). So far, they're my 2nd favorite flatwound. GHS being my 1st choice.

    But who cares! When I was a newbee on bass, I had a dream about strings too. They consisted of solid steel rods, welded to the bridge. They hurt my fingers badly. Everybody could play them, except me...
  4. Oh, you had that dream, too!

    Since I started playing bass, I have yet to have any gear related dreams. But in my early days as a drummer, I used to dream about playing with sticks made of solid stainless steel. Frustrating.

    They were Rotosound 77LDs, 45-105. First set of strings I ever bought!
    My buddy has them on an ibanez artcore, and they still sound good. But the wrap on the G string started developing huge gaps in it
    so I replaced it with a roundwound I had lying around.
    Funny, I use GHS flats now too...
