    My local pawn shop has a pair of very old looking Rotosound flatwounds. I couldn't find a year on them, but the package looked very old. The paper was yellowing, and it just had an altogether old look. They're on sale for $30.

    You think these are in demand by any collectors or anything? It's an unused pack, of course.

    Nope -strings are more likely to "go off" and be unplayable due to age, than to improve.

    Wood, in basses, ages well - metal, just corrodes!! :meh:
