Hi, I have recently started experimenting with flatwounds, and I love the feel and the tone, but I am still trying to find "the one". I have so far tried Chromes (ECB81 45-100), La Bella (740FS), Ernie Ball Cobalts (45-105), and also La Bella 750T tapewound. Here are my impressions: Chromes: My favorite tone out of them. I love that it has those strong lows but at the same time it's bright enough to be used in rock songs. It sounds very dry and to the point. The only problem is that they are so stiff I can barely play after a few songs. La Bella 740FS: I like the tone, very classic, but not as much as Chromes. They feel much better too, not very stiff, and definitely more slick. The Chromes sometimes get sticky or have a "dirty" feeling to them that I did not find in La Bellas (I always clean them before stringing). Cobalts: They also feel sticky and dirty like Chromes, but probably have the best tension out of the ones I tried. The tone is not my favorite though, too "modern". La Bella 750T (tapewound): I like the tone but they are way too floppy. So I am basically looking for something that sounds like Chromes but feels like La Bellas, or at least is not as stiff as Chromes are. I decided to ask around before buying yet more strings. So far my most obvious choices are getting lower gauge Chromes or TI Jazz Flats. I searched the forums for the Custom Light Chrome set (ECB84) but found only a few impressions. Anybody have experience and would recommend them? Or are the Super Lights (ECB80) better? I see a lot of people swearing by the TIJF, but I am afraid I will find them too floppy too. Are they as low tension as the La Bella tapewounds? And what is their tone like compared with the ones I have experienced? Thank you!
