so last night after a big festival we played.. a little bluegrass/acoustic jam broke out late night around the campfire. some guy had a little practice amp and was jamming. i jumped in on his bass (carvin electric i think). he had these flatwounds on there that were smooth as freaking butter. sounded awesome. he said they were coated and were around $250 a set!! and he said they have been on that bass for 4 years.... i can' remember what they were called. any ideas? and if so....are they that great? . . . ..
