OK I have posted in other flat threads about how I just can't get used to flats,I have a set of chromes that I have put on and taken off my P bass over the last 4 or 5 months about 5 times.I think there cute for about a half hour then I hate them and put rounds back on.I've even put the flats on the night before my morning church gig,I woke up in the middle of the night & changed the strings back to rounds.I wrote them off!there a waste of money I want to like them but I can't! my plan was to cut them up and throw them in the trash!!! But before I do that I just have to hear them in a live setting.so I put them on in the morning right before I left so I would have no time to change them back to rounds,and I would have to play them cuz I normally only take one bass with me. so my verdict.they sounded good,dam good!I am surprised and humbled.they are so strong & clear sounding,comments from the sound guy you sound great today your in the mix but stand out & very clear he said he could hear every lick run & trick I played and after service I was told by many that they could here me clearly. so I have decided to leave the flats on.I don't hate them any more.so thanks flat users for all the posts on flats.if it weren't for you all I would have never tried them.now I"m thinking I wanna buy a second jazz bass & try some Sadowsky black label flats.thanks a lot guys.
