    What are some long lasting half-rounds? I know that flatwounds can sound great for years, but I want more sustain and a bit more brightness. I'm using SIT Powerflats right now, and I love the tone. I do want to try something else, though.

    GHS Bright flats last long. D'Addario halfrounds go dead quick and I mean DEAD! They were better when they made them with steel windings now they use nickel windings and it killed them.

    That's really good to hear! I was debating between the D'Addario's and the GHS today, and settled on the GHS!
