Just wanted to see what you guys thought of these two style of strings. Currently I am playing two Stingrays and I love them. They are the best places i've ever played, but I've never liked roundwounds a whole lot, yet everyone seems to play rounds on a Stingray. I was thinking of putting flats on one Ray and Halfs on the other. I play in church, and have a couple of different rockbands that i'm playing in. I used to have flats on a passive jazz and I lvoed the tone. I was gonna put some on my Ray when I first got it, but several of my guitar and bass playing friends told me I was defeating the purpose of having a Stingray if I put flats on it. I'm ready to try them out but wanted to see if anyone else had experience using flats or halfrounds on an aggressive bass like a Stingray. Also, how different do these strings sound? I've never played halfrounds so i'm a little apprehensive to spend 35 bucks on them.
