    Im experimenting with different String on my Stingray and I decided to try these.
    I have a 1996 Stingray 3-band with Basslines pickup/preamp, its always been an aggressive/sizzely sounding bass and hasn't had much playing time in recent years as Ive been favoring passive Fenders. However, I really dig the tone it gets with flats! I have an old set of LaBella 760-FL's on it now, they sound good just maybe a bit too scooped or dark. Im giving the Group III's a try, anyone have these on a Stingray?

    The regular Ernie Ball flats don't get a lot of mention 'round these parts. But I've tried all manner of flats, and I find the EB flats (Group I for me, I do tune down to D-standard) to be among the best, perhaps even my overall favorite.

    But, alas, I do not have them on a Stingray, but rather on a fretless Roadster and a fretless Vantage.

    So they came in...and i promptly put them on my Stingray. Ill hold off final judgment until about a month or so, all flats sound a bit "off" fresh out of the package, these are no acception. The strings that came off were very old DTF's 760FL, on this bass they were a bit too scooped and dark for me. The Group III's out of the package are a bit brite and have an upper mid bite...ill give them a few weeks and see how they settle it.
