Just a quick note (I'll do a review in gear review later) to describe some string si've fallen in love with: S.I.T. Power Flats. They are nickle, medium gauge, and describes as not a true flat, but more like a ground wound. The thing is I had put a set of Elixir polywebs on my pink paisley P bass and was somewhat happy, but not really. They were quite bright. I liked the clarity, but wanted more thump. Thump plus clarity: this is what I seek. I have TIs on a couple of basses, but wanted something a bit more in your face for the P (I'm in a 60's cover band) and wanted to feel comfortable digging in. Well, I love these SIT Power Flats. Lots of thump, with a buttery tone (with the single coil, anyway).
