I'm trying to flatwounds right now. I have D'Addario Chromes on my Italia Maranello 61. Sounds great!

I think they're alright, but there isn't much clank to them.. nice for jazz, and stuff where you don't want to have a treble sound

this. they do change the sound a lot, but i wish you could get the feel of flatwounds and the tone of round wounds in one set of strings i love the feel but the sound isn't really my cup of tea.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

my italia's pickups are really hot anyway...so having round wounds is almost too much treble if you know what i mean

I'm using flatwounds also. I personally don't like a lot of treble too much. In some cases it's great if I'm doing certain chords, but for soloing or most rhythm, I don't like the treble. It can get kinda ear piercing and just over the top.

I use flatwounds on my acoustic so that it doeesn't have that crazy high pitched squeak when you slide your fingers over the strings. Other than that, I dont use them.

Thinking of trying some flatwounds on my Ibanez semi. It's the beauty of owning a guitar, you can tinker with out causing too much damage to your wallet, although flats are fairly expensive I guess

What's the difference?

Not as in I think they're the same, as in: I don't know what they are or what I use.

Oh, DON'T use a knife. It cuts through your strings. I did that once, thinking, its the Low E, its invincible. Turns out, its not...

flatwounds sound to dull for me. Even for jazz, I want bright sounding low strings so chords dont get muddy.

I tried Flat wounds on a guitar and didn't like them at all they don't seem to have the grip round wounds do... funny, they sound flat. Every time I tried bending my fingers slid off them. On the other hand I love using flat wounds on a bass especially a fret less one.
