I think I'm finally happy with my tone. Ric 4003, TI flats, YBA-200 with Kt-88's and Mullard 12at7's, and an Ampeg 8x10. Practice tonight sounded soooo good. I think the flats really made a difference. Yes, digging in with the TI's and it's string tension was different, but I love the tone. I'll never buy another set of roundwounds. I know, this post dosen't really mean jack $#%# to anybody, but I'm finally happy. I suggest trying flatwounds if you haven't tried 'em yet!
