Hi all - just wanted to tip my hat to Pyramid for really great customer service. I have a set of Pyramid Gold flats on my P-bass, and love them (best ever flats, IMO); I contacted them (via email) about my e string going somewhat dead prematurely. I asked if there was a US supplier to purchase single strings (they are made in Germany).Without any further ado, they sent me a complete set of replacement strings at no charge! For the sake of anyone who doesn't know these strings, they are nickel flatwounds with a beautiful, buttery feel (don't know how else to describe them) and a rich, full tone that is not "thuddy" like so many of the old-school flats. They are pricey (think $70 - like TI's) but with a very long life. If you are into this sound, I highly recommend them. And the company backs their products 110%, which is worth alot to me.
