    Have used TI-flats on my P-Bass.I like them.
    What are the difference between them and TI-Jazz Rounds.

    People use to say that JRs are a mid term between flats and rounds. I disagree. Jazz rounds are ROUND strings, but have a softer fret noise (probably due to the silk inside them) than usual rounds. Not metallic, more like a nylon guitar fret noise (kind of :D)

    The string tone is also warmer than usual strings. They sound less hi-fi than usual rounds, with less overtones. Maybe like... mmm ... a mid term between flats and rounds...:meh: :eek: :D

    Bottom end: warmer rounds.
