    I have always used roundwound strings, but was wondering what kind of difference using flats would make. What are flats by the way!

    To answer your second question first, flatwounds are similar to roundwounds until the final wrap, when they are wrapped with a flat ribbon, instead of a round wire. To answer the first question, do a search. Also look just a little further down the "strings" page, and you'll see some discussion of this same subject, with links to more.
