Hi everybody. I am currently using a set of GHS flatwound on my 4 string. This is my first set of flatwound and overall I like them. They feel better with less string noise. On my bass I can still get usable slap tone and I kinda like the stiffer feel too(oh yes I changed the string height and neck bow to accommodate...it took some time). The only problem I have is they don't have enough sustain. Because I don't have 17 basses to fulfill all my needs(I have two ), I need my main 4 string bass to be versatile. Now it works great for funk and jazz, however when I play church gig and for the slow songs..I play whole notes but they decay so quickl sounding like half notes... So my question is, which flatwound strings has better sustain? It doesn't have too be really thumpy. I like the feel of flatwounds and now I am looking for the sound in between flats' and rounds' I guess. Ah, one more thing. I feel like the intonation on E string was a bit shakey too..maybe because it is not tapered or what?
