Last night we did alternating sets with another band. The other band's bass player played his recently acquired Danelectro Longhorn reissue strung with Fender flats (not sure of the guage). Punchy punchy punchy! Really cut through the mix and had a warm, even tone from string to string. He is an aggressive player, and these strings (and the short scale bass) really let him punch through. He said they were really inexpensive strings too...I'm going to give them a try. Fender flats come in odd guages compared to a lot of other brands. Anyone used them and can recommend a guage...I'm looking for string tension equal to DR Sunbeams...not too tight but not floppy like the TI flats.
