About Flatwound Bass Strings
Flatwound Bass Strings offer the player a unique and very different range of harmonic content and tonal possibilities in their playing, with minimal adjustments. Flatwound bass guitar strings, just like flatwound guitar strings, are built around the same core wire as round wound strings, but with a flattened metal wrap wire. The net result is a string with a flat playing surface that feels smoother boasts a warmer, more old school tone that's perfect for jazz, Motown and R&B styles. This flat profile also makes flatwound strings great for fretless basses as the smoother surface doesn't dig into the lightly finished or unfinished fingerboard wood.
Flatwound strings have found a home with modern players across a range of styles, and are available in short scale and full length scale sets, from classic 4 string to full on extended range sets, delivering longer playing life, greater sustain and a completely different harmonic content for the player to explore.
