Medium tension flatwounds?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Moondog, Mar 1, 2003.


  1. Could anyone recommend a medium tension flatwound? Preferably very thumpy with short sustain.

    I've tried Fender flats (tension too high) and Thomastiks (tension too low).

    I want to put them on a P bass. Thanks!!!

  3. D'addario Chrome Flats sound best on my P bass. and they last forever (or so it seems) .
