    I was wondering if anyone uses flat wounds on a five string bass? I can't seem to find a standard set of flat wounds for a five. I can always custom order them but sets usually cost less. Is their a reason that I am not aware of?
  2. My main axe is a 5 string, a Carvin LB75, and I alternate between LaBella flatwounds and LaBella black tape wounds. I obtain mine through Carvin. The tape wounds are brighter but I like the deep boom that regular flatwounds can give. I believe D'Addairo also makes a flatwound set for 5 strings.
