a fellow talkbasser got me thinking about using flatwounds next time i change strings, needless to say, $30.00 later im going home with a set of Rotosound steve harris flats. nice quality, but i wonder if these are something i want to stick with over the long haul. as a newer player am i better off with rounds until ive got more years playing under my belt? can flats hurt my budding style? and lastly, can the flats be removed and reused later or do they not respond well to that sort of thing. btw, i play a fretted american jazz, thanks for your 2 cents.
