    The bassist is playing a pbass, is there a recommendation on the string i need to get to get that tone?

    for some reason i thought of black nylon flatwound, at about 2:15 he start slapping, i still hear that strong attack but without that overly bright overtones that normally presence in roundwound, i thought it might just be an old roundwound string but i might be wrong.

    any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  2. I watched very carefully several times at full screen, and they are definitely NOT black tapewounds. The darkness of tone/sound and purcussive punch just screams GHS Precision Flatwounds. Due to the various colored lights it was tough to tell if the silks were purple and thus GHS Precision flats, but they did appear to be that color at 4:03.
