has anyone tried these yet? how do they compare to the good flats out there?
Sadowsky flats are made by Labella, and are killer. The 5 string set has a taper B, that is clear sounding and really matches the rest of the set. You can't go wrong with these flats.
I played in front of a group of musicians with these two weeks ago, and they were pretty surprised I was playing flats. They believed them to be rather articulate and bright for flats. I love them.
K....what type of bass are you playing? Have you tried the Chromes?
I'm using the Flats on my.........Sadowsky fretless. I also use the nickels by Sadowsky and have previously tried the Stainless, which were too bright for my tone.
I have two Sadowsky basses. PJ4 and JJ4.
I use Sadowsky Flats on the PJ and Sadowsky Bright Nickels on the JJ, both are well suited with these strings.
Sadowsky flats are made by Labella? Which Labella flats are they similar to, if any?
I've got Sadowsky flats on my SCHP Bongo 5 fretless. They've been on there about 8 months now, and sound warm and articulate. And, they really sing with the piezos, too.
Great string. I don't ever see myself trying anything else on this bass.
and by the way, my understanding is that they were made by R. Cocco per Roger's specifications.
That's R.Cocco Jr. of LaBella, the son of R.Cocco Sr., no longer with us.
Thanks for the tip-in!
Another great flat wound set IMO would be the La Bella 760FL's which go from .43 to .104 they are really smooth and medium tension with deep bottom, a nice warm tone and smooth top. These have been my favorites for years on my P/J's.
I put a set on my Metro MV4 and..... I didn't care for them on this bass. I plan to put them on my P-bass sometime down the road (I love flats on a P), but I like the Elixer's i'm using on my Metro much better for that bass.
The flats just seemed to soften the tone up too much for my liking.... although, they're pretty aggressive flats.
