Anyone have any thoughts and comments on Fender Strings especially the flatwounds?
I put a set of Fender Stainless flats - the ones that start at .050 on one of my Precisions. I like them. The sound and feel are great and they are in tune. I used to sometimes use a round E with flats (Fender Nickle Wrapped), but with this set it wasn't necessary.
I had 9050M flat stainless on my J fretless. I liked the feel very much, and they stay in tune. High tension and large size. Very comfy to play.
I took them off because I wanted more mwah, so I put on a set of DA EXL-220 nickel rounds. Lots of mwah, but skinny little strings, and they make marks on my finger board.

Just played a wedding with a lot of oldies this weekend with my P bass and Fender flatwounds. Nice warm vintage sound and they covered up all my bad habits that cause so much string noise.
Fender flats are great. I am very happy with them, and I think they are better than rotosound flats. Rotosound seems to produce off sounding strings quite often in a set. The fenders stay in tune remarkably well, for some reason.
I run Fender superbass on my 'Ray. I love them. Nice and bright, but not obnoxious. Quality is pretty consistant, too.
I'm thinking about throwing some flats on my '76 P bass, and they'll probably be Fenders also.
that is such a great personification of the sound alot of people want from their strings!
I use 9050Ms on almost all my basses - they're great!
