I have a mexican Fender P Bass. Would you recommend Fender 9050M Flatwounds?

    They cost $22 Bucks, I'm thinking of getting some. Have anyone ever used these? Are they good?

    I would recommend the 9050L's, or 9050ML's. I didn't care for the 9050M's-way too stiff, and IMHO not as good a tone as the others mentioned. :hyper:

    What kind of tone are you looking for? The Motown "thump," or simply a smoother, mellower sound?

    I would recommend 9050's for any bass.

    9050's sound good but they are way too stiff. If you want to stay with Fender strings try the 7150's. If brand doesn't matter try LaBellas or GHS Flats.
     
  6. I also have a MIM P-Bass. The neck is nice 'n sturdy, and it stays in tune forever.

    TI Flats are real nice "woody" sounding, but the lowest tension. Love 'em or hate 'em. The TI Flats lasted 5 years on my P. They got pretty "ka-chinky" sounding, and would probably be great on a fretless P that is imitating an upright bass.

    DA Chrome Flats are very versatile, a bit brighter for a flat.

    LaBella Deep Talkin' Flats are nice too. Lots of thump.

    The Fender 9050ML are also thumpers. They have a reputation for going dead quickly.
