Flatwounds with the tension of Hi-Beams?

    I'd like to try out some flatwounds on a bass that I don't play much anymore, but I have no idea what the tension range is of the different brands/sets. I love the feel of my DR Hi-Beams, are there any flatwounds with a similar tension?
  2. GHS, Fender, D'Aquisto, and Labella flats.

    I prefer TI's but you may like the higher tension flats!

    You mhgt also check out how strings are made and try to get a flatwound with the same type of material as the Hi-Beams.
