These strings give you that great flatwound sound and feel. I put these on my Gibson SG bass, and they even fit a short scale fine. These are just as good as any other flatwound strings out there, but without the price.

I tried these on my 1952 Precision (not a reissue, it has a 4 digit s/n on the bridge starting with 01**). I did not care for the feel of them. I pick with my thumb and fingers and I found them to be as lifeless as tapewounds and they even had a stickier feel than tapewounds. I did try playing them with a pick but it was still thud city. After a couple of weeks I put the D'Addario Half Rounds I took off back on the old girl and like magic I had great tone again. I realize they're inexpensive however, they made a bass that is a piece of history sound like junk.

Great Flatwounds! Even Better Price!

By John Spokus

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Fender 9050L Stainless Steel Flatwound Long Scale Bass Strings - Light:

These are similar to D'Addario Chromes, maybe a little warmer tone, but similar concept. Great all purpose strings, work really well on my Fender Jazz. Still plenty of highs when you need them. Roll back your tone knob and you get the vintage Fender thump.

Comments about Fender 9050L Stainless Steel Flatwound Long Scale Bass Strings - Light:

I love the feel of these strings they are a little to zingy at first but after you play for a few hours the soften up these sound great and pickup really good so you get a really loud sound they look dirty even they stay clean i recomend to everyone

      Comments about Fender 9050L Stainless Steel Flatwound Long Scale Bass Strings - Light:

      I began playing bass on round wound strings because they were on the bass I purchased. My first teacher switched me to flat wounds and at first, I thought the feel was not quite right. I came to love them quickly when I discovered I could play for hours without hurting my fingers. I especially like them on my fretless basses because they don't beat up the neck. The 9050L model strings produce a nice low end tone despite the light gauges. They are affordable too.

      Great Strings

      By WAYNE

      Comments about Fender 9050L Stainless Steel Flatwound Long Scale Bass Strings - Light:

      This is the first time I have purchased Fender 9050L's and found them to have that warm fender sound and no squeeks like with a round wound and the price won't break the bank. I use them on a Jazz Bass.

          Bought these to put on a Jazz Bass. They sound a little tinny to me, but this is my first jazz bass, first SS strings and the first time Fender strings, couldn't give them 5 stars, but we will see

              Comments about Fender 9050L Stainless Steel Flatwound Long Scale Bass Strings - Light:

              These are my main strings now, I switched from Ernie Ball Roundwound Slinkys. My main reason for switching was I hated that scratchy sound when your fingers slide on the strings. I also don't like the tinny sound of new strings, so these sound good to me right out of the box. Use them on my MM Ray 34 and Ibanez basses. Love the tone and they are far less sticky than the Ernie Ball Cobalt Flats. I pick, pluck, and a little slap a very wide range of music.

                These are for my Squier VM 77 Jazz. These Strings give it that vintage tone and feel.
