So my primary bass (Washburn Taurus) has strings on it that are beyond the dead point. I didn't have time to go buy some and change them before practice yesterday, so I pulled out the trusty SX P bass that I have strung with Fender flats and used it for the entire rehearsal. I have to admit, I got a lot more than I expected out of that thing! Keep in mind I play in a rock/hard rock band that plays a majority in dropped D and E flat tunings, so flatwounds were not in the "usual" formula for this type of music based on what most people say. I played both fingerstyle and with a pick for about half of the time. Is this really a workable formula for modern heavy rock? A p bass with flats? We play some Velvet Revolver/GNR covers with our originals being mostly in that style. I have to say, my fingers felt a lot better after practice using the flats instead of rounds like I usually use! Anybody else had experience like this using flats?
