Hello All, I`m very new to playing bass. I`ve seen so many types of strings available and it`s mind boggling. I now have peavey steel rounds on my bass. They sound really bright, almost too bright for my taste. I am looking into getting some flat wounds for a warmer tone. Before i spend the money on these strings,i thought i might get some input from you guys. I (try) to play rock,metal and blues. By the way, will i get less fret noise with flats? Any input would be greatly appreciated.THANKS!!
