    Which nickel set would you say has the most low end and warmth? I'm not at all interested in treble responce, as you can tell ;)

    No half-flats/rounds, I'm not a fan of how they feel =/
    Basically, what do you think is the closest to a flat tone, while still being a roundwound?

    Check out this recent thread about nickel roundwounds. Someone posted a chart with tone ratings from Bass Player magazine.

    The tone chart in that link, the Elricks look like what I"m looking for, anyone know where to get them?
     
  4. Thanks for the chart. I added the data to the STRINGS section of my spread sheet.
