so, like the rest of you, I've been on my search for the perfect tone for quite some time. After the unfortunate unravelling of my 10 year old Fender flats on my '69 P-bass, I panicked at the thought that I would not be able to recreate that lovely old school thump that envelopes me night after night. So after trying out Sadowsky's flats I was impressed, however, I couldn't resist my G.A.S. for these outrageously priced Pyramid Golds, and I went for it. Let me say, WOW! Not only are these strings smoother than any flatwound string I have ever felt, but the highs are absolutely spectacular and the E string is like no other I have ever felt. It's super thick, but the tension is perfect and the tone is clearer than any flatwound E I have ever played, heard, of felt (which is pretty much every flat out there other than DR). I really suggest that everyone try a set of these amazing strings. Any other experiences?
