i've got a '77 series 1 short scale that i use as my main bass in my band. i was wondering if anyone here has ever tried flatwounds on an alembic? the band i play is kinda like a southern rock +Zeppelin + Otis Redding kind of thing. would it fit that application? just wondering 'cause i saw where john paul jones once quoted that hw thought he "lost half the bass" when he tried flats. any experience?
