    I have a hohner B2A (surprisingly) and want to change the strings. Its still got the ones it came with - like 2 years old. There just standard roundwounds as far as i can tell. A good deal of GHS Fast Fret that a friend lent me has helped keep them alive - speeds them up without brightening them too much.

    I was looking at some flats having played a fender with some on and liked them.
    Has anyone any experience with this bass (or the steinberge L2 it was based on) and can offer any string advice?

    I've been using Status strings on some of my basses for a year or two. I've got flatwounds on my headed six and double-ball roundwounds on my headless six (main bass).

    I found the flat wounds a bit on the stiff side - a nice sound but quite tiring to play. I've been very happy with the roundwounds though.

    Definitely worth checking out.
