Flats for a fretless JB2?

    Picked up a fretless G&L JB2 from NYCBass and I love the way this thing sounds.


    It arrived wearing DR Sunbeams (not sure how old they are, but not super bright), and I'm wondering which flats, if any, would have a similar tone to the Sunbeams.

    The fingerboard is ebony, so maybe flats aren't really a requirement in terms of wear? Maybe I'm just really intrigued by the idea of flats, as I've never had a set on a bass of my own.

    Thoughts? Recommendations?

    The more I read about flats, tapes, etc, the more I just confuse myself. :)

    GHS pressurewounds are the perfect medium btw flats and rounds on a fretless. Worth a shot.
