Hey readers! I’m home recovering from foot surgery and can only play my bass guitar…. So I decided to experiment with flatwound strings – something I haven’t played on since high school. I was looking for a rounder thicker sound for my electric bass. I left the low B string a regular roundwound to keep the definition on the low and replaced the top 4 strings with Fender Medium Flatwounds. Initial reactions:
-Definitely less volume than roundwounds
-They have a very old school reggae sound
I’m still undecided if I like them or not but of course I’ll give them a week or two to see.
Thoughts on strings? Let me know!
