Hello, I'm looking for some insight from my fellow flatwound players (both fretted and fretless) who have found what they believe to be the most tonally balanced set of strings available. I have been using flats for approximately 3 years, and have loved the change/improvement in texture and tone compared to nickel rounds. They also fit in more musical styles than people think and they are more natural for those of us that double on double (see what I did there?) I am without a doubt a "flatwound convert" but I always have the same issue with each brand, and gauge, that I have tried: Why is the E so inconsistent with the rest of the set? Regardless of the brand, I always run into this roadblock and it keeps me from being completely satisfied with my tone. I have tried most of the major brands and currently have the following sets strung on various basses: Roto 77s (40-100), Chromes (45-100) and DR Legends (one gauge only... 45-105). These sets run the gamut in terms of oldschool versus modern flatwound tone, but they all suffer from an E string that is either too boomy (Chromes), too tinny (Rotos) or just straight-up dead (DRs). Is there a brand out there that will fix this issue? What is the coveted middle-ground set?
