    the status shark 5 string is 12 years old and i love it.
    should i get the daddario chromes or use the FENDER LM and a roundwound B string

    is this a common thing to use a "normal" B with a flatwoundset ?

    thanks for your help guys

    I'll bite - Why do you want to use a roundwound B, regardless of whether it is common or not?

    i only do have a 4 string fender LM set here, and a fender tapewound 4 string set !

    ..... it also sounds not bad (tapewounds and roundswound B).....

    so i wanted to know if i should put the flatwound on or wait and save money.....

    i tried the chromes and have to say im very pleased with the sound and especially the b string. good set, nice sound and better "feel" for the fingers (less stiff for ex.) than my fenders L on the jazzbass
