    Comments about D'Addario ECB82 Chromes Flatwound Medium Bass Strings:

    Bought a new bass and wanted to swap out the round wounds for a flat wound. I like the feel and finger slide I get with flats. They have a dull gray finish and look nice on the bass. The wraps are dark blue at the ends. Overall, the sound is nice, plenty of brightness for flats, smooth under the fingers, good sustain. I have only had them on for a week now, so no idea about longevity. Still, a great string for the price.

    Comments about D'Addario ECB82 Chromes Flatwound Medium Bass Strings:

    I've been testing the Flatwound market for a bit now. Now these string are not bad it's just they lack in tone. No real bottom end warmth or top end brightness that I can get out of other strings. The tension is good,quality feels good and I'm sure these string would last a long time. They just sounded dead and have no sustain. :( So far the Fender 9050M flatwounds have been the best for tone and DR Legends for smoothness (dull tone too). It's too bad I was really hoping they would be me new string of choice.

      Comments about D'Addario ECB82 Chromes Flatwound Medium Bass Strings:

      I started putting on D'Addorio flatwound strings a couple of years ago, and won't use anything else now. Their tone is great and I seldom have to retune my bass as these strings stay in tune really well. I have recommended these strings to other players and they love them too! I highly recommend these strings!

      Great strings - no noise

      By 

      from Bloomfield, MI

      Comments about D'Addario ECB82 Chromes Flatwound Medium Bass Strings:

      I was tired of the noise from the round wound strings and decided to try flat wound. All the dire predictions of loss of brightness did not materialize, they sound great. Strings are easy to install with a little attention to detail. We'll see if they last as long as round wound.

      AHH......This Guage!

      By 

      from Rio De Jeniro, Brazil

      Comments about D'Addario ECB82 Chromes Flatwound Medium Bass Strings:

      I've played Chromes in the past in the 45-100 guage. While I liked them I felt that they liked something. I recently put a set of these on my P-Bass {50-105's}, and what a difference! My lows are rich and full. Mids are barky with a nice aggressive growl, and my highs are bright and even sounding. Im going to put these on my Jazz Bass as well. Nice, Full, sparkly Tone!!

      nice strings for standards and jazz

      By 

      from Pleasant Hill, CA

      Comments about D'Addario ECB82 Chromes Flatwound Medium Bass Strings:

      I've put these strings on several basses, all of which came with roundwound strings that have too much finger noise for the kind of music I play. These flatwounds eliminate that problem and have a nice rich, organic sound. They particularly stand out on my acoustic/electric bass guitar, giving a really pretty sound, but they are nice on regular electric bass guitars as well. I would recommend them.

      Really bring out tone of bass

      By 

      from Alpharetta, GA

      Comments about D'Addario ECB82 Chromes Flatwound Medium Bass Strings:

      I put a set of D'Addario ECB82 flats on my 2001 Fender Fretless Jazz bass, as I was unimpressed with the factory strings. I could immediately notice a difference in tone. These strings do produce the warm sound they advertise. And if you think that all flats have poor sustain, you are most certainly wrong. These strings allow for long sustain even when playing notes high on the fretboard. While I prefer roundwounds for slapping and popping, you can easily pop and slap on these strings, although they do not feel as responsive as roundwounds in my opinion. The only thing I don't like is that the G string sounds a little too bright for my liking. These are great strings, and no matter what type of bass you own, I am sure you will be satisfied.
