    Out of curiousity I threw the .105-.045 set on my Fender 57 Reissue P and was blown away. Not to gush or anything, but these are quite possibly the most balanced sounding set of flats I've ever used: very smooth feeling, low tension, and the E sounds fat AND clear- not blurry and indistinct like many flats I've tried. The mids from these strings absolutely kill- easily the best I've heard from a flatwound. I'm impressed!

    I have a set of these on a Martin ABG. I initially had problems finding a set that was consistant from string to string, but after consulting with Sadowsky and my local shop, I finally got a set that is even. You are absolutely right. These flats are awesome. Great balance of fundamental AND overtones. Not many flats can pull this off well. They feel great, too. I think I may have to stock up. Cheers.
