Several years ago I strung up my bass with a set of flats that have gold nuts and no silk. They are amazingly smooth strings, and I love them. I could have sworn they were Chromes. But last month when I was stringing up another bass and wanted the same strings, I ordered a set of Chromes only to discover that they were not the same as what I have on that bass. They aren't nearly as smooth or shiny. The only other strings I can remember buying were Fender 9050 stainless strings, so I ordered a set of those, but those aren't as smooth either. Can anyone either identify super smooth flats from several years ago with gold nuts and no silk, or alternatively, suggest the smoothest flats available today? Thank you.
