    Was thinking of putting on flats on a Yamaha RBX350, just cause I love to play flats, no thoughts of the results ;) nah, but srsly have been thinking of putting flats on it for a year now and I will choose between Sadowsky Black Label or DR Hi Beams, any suggestion? Want a versitale sound (for a flat) but can't decide between the two, both seem great, and very versatlile/great to play/great tone.

    The only thing to do with strings is try them until you land on something you like.

    The DRs will be brighter than Sadowsky flats. Sadowsky has a balance of old school thump and modern brightness while the DRs have a bit of the round wound zing and less thump and warmth.
