So I got a good used set of TI flats from TBer Jason (bassmonkeee), and let me tell ya. IM SOLD. Wasnt wowed by the tone with the bass by itself, but I slipped in a few CDs and hot dang. My StingRay 5 was singing. I have always liked the SR5s, but have always felt something missing, and the TIs rounded that out. I really cant even put into words how good these strings sound to me. The StingRay 5 and the TI Jazz Flats sound like they were made for each other.
