[I have no idea if this belongs here or in Strings] I play mostly funk (70s, pfunk, disco) and motown on a MMSterling 4HH, and I've been contemplating trying to refine my tone a bit, bit smoother, less treble. Since many (or rather all) players 'back in the day' used flatwounds. Question #1: Anybody have experience with slapping flatwounds? Question #2: Should I experiment with a bongo/SR4? I do like the playability (smooth/smaller neck and weight) of the sterling.
