However, they are flatwounds. If you like the otne of flats, they are good. However, many people prefer the brighter tone of roundwounds, so it's all choice.

thanks for the advice, my local shop has some flats for cheap so maybe i'll try them first before buying these

Remember though, the Steve Harris flats are brighter than your typical flatwound set.

Keep in mind Steve Harris changes his strings very often. So thats part of why his tone is so birght for a bass with flatwounds. I heard somewhere he changes them weekly or before every gig, something like that.

it's nice to have more money than sense isn't it

steve harris flats aren't that great, they are just like any other stainless steel flats in my experience, i didn't find them any brighter or more agressive, they sounded like flats

the brightness in steve's tone comes from his extremely low action and heavy attack causing the strings to vibrate against the frets creating a very trebley clanky tone
