Had a bass playing friend over the other day, so naturally we jammed for a while. He kicked on my OC-2 and after a few minutes commented on how he doesn't like the way Octave pedals track with round wound strings, I took over and showed him I had no issues using it with the same bass. So then we switched to a bass strung with flats ... again I had no problems and with the flats neither did he. So it made me wonder if any of you have any preference concerning Sting brand / type when it came to using effets of any type. I don't want to start a flats vs round debate or effects vs plugging straight into the amp . Just wondering what the people in my favorite forum thought.
