I picked up a set of Sadowsky Flatwounds ( 40-100) the other day and strung up my Martin ABG with them. I was initially very impressed with their tone and feel, but after playing them for a while, I noticed that the second string had an unnatural brightness to it. This brightness obnoxiously contrasts with the smooth, warm tone of the other strings. The other strings are bright compared to a lot of other flats, IME, but this second string is almost like having a stainless roundwound amidst three flats. Have any of you noticed this discrepancy? I hope I just got a bad set, because I really like these strings on this bass. Should I pop for another set? Should I contact Sadowsky? What would you do?
