    Bunch of goofyheads. They don't list a five-string set of either Brite flats or Precision Flatwounds, but you can buy a single B string in either type. Same with Pressurewounds. What's that about? Not only that, I just picked up a set of Carvin flatwounds, which are obviously GHS, and you can get a five-string set from them. I can't grok this.

    I thought the carvins were Labella, no?

    No. The roundwounds and tapewounds are, but the flats are not. If you put a Carvin flatwound next to a GHS-branded flatwound, they are exactlythe same. Not close, exactly. Nothing like Labella flats.
