First, thanks Jive1 for allowing me to try flatwounds on the cheap. Putting them on my P-Bass, they have solved so many problems in my sound: 1. String noise; all but gone. 2. I can do slides now, without any of that noise. 3. Chords sound so much better 4. Harmonics ring out better on the 12th fret 5. By decreasing the extreme lows and highs a tiny bit, and boosting around 500hz, I got a nice midrangy tone without any honk or nasal sound. I'd don't ever see myself ever going back to roundwound. Simply awesome. Thanks Jive!
