I have tried pretty much every brand of flat wound string on my Pbasses. Granted some were definitely better than others. I could never justify paying $70+ dollars on a set of strings when it came to TI flats. But, when I bought my Pino CS pbass a few months ago, I finally understood. I immediately went online and bought another set for my 63 pbass. These strings are unreal. Slinky and buttery with tone for days. Really exceptional. I can never dream of buying another brand of flats. The second best would be DR legends but TIs have really changed the game for me. Anyone out there agree?
