Flatwounds
Garbo28
Hi One and all. Two questions:

1) Has anyone tried flatwounds on a Kingbass? Just wondered what it would sound like. I am not a great slapper (don't listen to the rumours Smile ), I don't have a lot of call for it in my current band, but I wondered what it would sound like? Anyone's experiences would be appreciated.

2) What are the Status flatwounds like? Does anyone on here use them? How do they compare with for example, Rotosounds, or LaBellas for example? I know they all have their different tones etc. Again any experiences would be appreciated.

The closest I can get to that is my S3 fretted strung with TI Jazz Flats.

YouTube Video:


I have used the Status flats in the past and to be frank they were like stair rods. Not my cup of tea but some people would like them I'm sure.

I use LaBella 760FS flats on an Overwater fretless and they are fantastic. I have TI Jazz Flats on my S2 fretless at the moment which sound and feel sublime.
Unfortunately for everyone else I own the best Status bass ever built. Pfft

Thanks Bassbus, this is definitely food for thought, your S3 sounds meaty. I may give the TIs a go, they make them in a similar gauge to what I already use.

The reason for all this is that I bought a Hofner Ignition Violin Bass a little while ago for messing around on and recently fitted LaBella Flatwounds to it, and could not get over how good it sounded and played. So was interested in what they might do for my Kingbass (though the Kingbass is in regular gigging use, so didn't want to buy a pricey set of strings and mess about with it with gigs looming)
