Flatwound Strings, Again

As my experiment with flatwound strings continues I’m really getting into their sound. I ordered two different kinds – Fender and LaBella. The Fender is a much louder, stiffer string while the LaBella Deep Talkin’ feels a lot like a gut string and lacks punch.

So what will my next string be? Of course I’ll have to try the halfwound – a happy medium between round and flatwound.

    This is a bit revealing, but here goes.
    Pirastro Olive–Only $500 per set and they last at least 3 months.

    Sorry, I forgot we were talking about the “other” bass.

    Try the Thomastik Jazz Flats- sort of a Spirocore for the electric bass. Lots of tone. I use them on my Fender Fretless A/E Precision.
