  • A shot of adrenalin for your tired bass

    As reviewed by SDMF4ever on 3/21/2007

    I put these flatwounds on my "back-up" Samick 3 weeks ago and was very impressed right off the bat. The strings are "Buttery Smooth" in all fret positions. Belive it or not, it seemed like the action was a little quicker also. I seem to be able to play a little faster and more effortlessly. There is plenty of "Punch" when you want to feed a low, melodic, growling bass line. They also deliver powerful, clear notes when you want to do a little soloing. The tonal range is outstanding. They are also VERY quiet when you record with them. I especially like the fabric grip on the peg end of the strings. No slipping here. By the way. My "back-up" Samick is now my main axe untill I put these flatwounds on my P-bass.

  • great flats, lots of thump

    As reviewed by bryanonbass on 10/11/2006

    these d'addario chrome flatwound strings are great. They sound huge and smooth, like flats should. They play effortlessly and are easy on the fingers. Plus the best part is they have tone for days. They are not dead sounding like some other flats out there and these last forever. Im going on 2 years on 1 set of these. I have used these on active and passive basses. I really like them on my p-bass style instruments. They just seem to fit that perfect. I have used these in all types of music settings. Rock, pop, funk, mellow jazz, etc. Highly recommended
