I'm trying for a new sound with flatwounds. I have a Peavey Cirrus bass (36" scale) and I currently have nickel roundwounds on it. But I've been listening to alot of old Beatles recordings (well, the latter days anyway, with Paul's Rick and the black tapewounds). I've also been listening to alot of blues and my band does alot of blues and cover tunes that need that driving, full sound...but not so clanky and bright like the roundwounds give. I was thinking of even trying Rotosound's black tapewounds (I love the larger sizes of the strings too as my D and G strings are so thin and when I go to them there is some serious drop-off in sound). I can't find any information as to whether or not those black tapewounds would fit a 36" scale bass (I think they might as I don't believe they have that cloth binding on the ends)...but I'm not sure. Anybody have any suggestions as to some nice flatwounds that will fit a 36" scale bass? I'd like to try them out for a completely different sound...but I haven't used flatwounds since the mid to late 70's. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
