I am buying a 6 string fretless bass soon, but I cannot seem to find any flatwound sets for 6 string basses. Does anyone have suggestions as to where I could find some or what brands are preferable?

Thanks

Buy a five sting set and then buy the high C separately. Alternatively, buy a 6 string set of Thomastik Infeld Jazz flats, they're the best flats in existence and they do six string sets.

i think carvin might have 6er sets of flats.. not sure, though

Rotosound RS776LD. They're discontinued, but I think you can still get a set from JustStrings.com.

+1,

I think you can get a 5 string set of flatwounds from GHS or D'Addario and add the high C separately like Spaz says, but it's been awhile since I checked.

Thomastik's flatwounds are pretty darn good, you might start with those.

I'll check out thomastik's as well. I never realized how difficult it was to find these kinds of strings, hah.

I noticed these on Just Strings website.

I like how the image of the box has the wrong model number crossed out and the right one written in by hand...


Yup, I noticed that too but I've never had an issue with the company on orders.
