"I got 'em. I put 'em on. I played. I think they sound great and feel even better."
"My fingers say flat, my ears say round, my frets say thank you."
"I think these strings are the best choice for recording and live performance as they have the fundamentals of traditional flats, but the definition of round wound strings."
"The perfect balance of deep bottom, punchy mids, a smooth top-end...The quest for the perfect flatwound string is finally over."
"A successful hybrid of old and new-school characteristics that sounds great on vintage-style passive axes, or modern machines with active electronics."
Ernie Ball Slinky Flatwound Bass Strings combine the smooth feel of traditional flats with the modern power of Cobalt.
Featuring a SuperBright Cobalt Ribbon wrap, Cobalt Underwraps and optimal core to wrap ratio, the new Flatwound Bass strings are the first flat that actually feels like a flat but sounds like a round.BUY NOW
