Flat wounds on acoustic bass (resonator in fact)

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Zerozeddy, Dec 2, 2004.


  1. Obviously a resonator bass is quite metallic and clangy so I have been thinking of putting some flatwounds on it. The reason for buying a reso is it is the loudest unamplified bass I could find - are flatwounds quieter than roundwounds (that the word?)?
