    flatwounds is what they are called.
  3. They are called Flatwounds and are made by each of these companies...I think you are talking about the Fender 9050 Stainless Flatwound Bass Strings.



    Heres a photo showing you the different types of strings and a brief explanation as to how they each get their name!

    Hope this helps!
