Looking for a good set of flatwounds, I initially selected Chromes based on broadly good reviews. First, I put them on a Warmoth creation: G4 body, P Neck, Stew-Mac P-pickups, high mass bridge. Strung the Chromes on, and I hated them. They got replaced with GHS pressurewounds in a hurry. Awesome. Gift to my brother. Next, I built a P Bass kit which turned out to be pretty nice. Chunky, P-style neck and I upgraded to Kent Armstrong pups. Put the Chromes on to finish it out. Sucked. I replaced them with D'Addario XL170s. Excellent. My totally unpleasant experience with Chromes led me to use GHS Precision Flats on my next P Bass project. Fabulous strings. Love 'em. So I finally got around to restoring the first bass I ever built, a J Bass kit from BYO Guitar. Replaced the pickups with GFS, upgraded the pots, and on a whim, strung it with the twice-rejected Chromes. I love it. Couldn't be happier. It took a long time, but I finally decided I like Chromes. Any other similar experiences out there with various strings?
