i keep hearing about flats and im debating trying a set out. now, im told they sound dead and muddy. is this true? what types of sound would i get with my p. i play hardcore, semi distorted stuff. would i still be able to get distortion.od with flats? also. i usually play elixirs because i kill strings with my sweat. do flats die easy like roundwounds, or does that dead sound just naturally come from the flats, and remain that way for the life of them?
