    Dudes and Dudettes, I have some strings that I don't like, but I don't want to throw away. First, some Dean Markley flatwounds, .045-.105 IIRC. These are dark, thumpy sounding strings with a quick decay. Second, some Rotosound 88 Tru-bass tapewounds, .065-.115. These are dark and thumpy sounding with a quick decay. And finally, some GHS Brite Flats, .052-.103. These are uh... dark and thumpy, but with a bit more sustain than the others mentioned.

    Also, the DM's and Roto's are cut for a 2+2 headstock and probably won't fit your Fender. The Brite Flats are almost new, as I had the A, D, and G on my P for a few minutes, and the E is still in the package. The A, D, and G are cut for a Fender-style headstock.

    So. Lemme know what you got, I'm interested in other flatwounds, LaBella, Fender, or GHS nylons, etc.

    OK. I see what's happened. I have somehow failed to communicate to you that these are very cool strings. Perhaps you've been saying to yourself, "Self, I need some dark, thumpy strings that will help my bass sound like an URB." Well, here's your chance!

    All you have to do is PM or e-mail me, let me know what old, crappy strings you have available, and get these shiny, new-ish strings in trade. I mean, what could be simpler?
