Flatwounds with good sustain?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by fourstringbliss, Feb 12, 2006.

  1. Who makes flatwounds that have good sustain?
  2. are fender flatwounds any good?
  3. Nope, I've got some and the tension is too high, plus I don't like the sound. Thanks, though.

    I think it's pretty much agreed around here that Thomastik-Infeld jazz flats have the most sustain of any flats. The lowest tension too.

    Yup. Got them on one of my basses and I really like them. Played D'addario and Labella flats before too for a comparisson.

    I get good sustain out of mine.
