    Call me thick for not knowing this but what is the difference between Flatwounds and Roundwounds? E.g. sound quality etc.

    When I get my strings I just ask for some Rotosound strings just because I like the tone of them.

    A bit of enlightenment would be a great help!
     
  2. Do a search on this. I think there's been hundreds of threads on this subject.

    That thread comes to mind. There are many others. I just did a search using the criteria:

    flatwound AND roundwound

    in the strings forum, and theres piels of results.
