Anyone tried these strings out before? They are clearly way cheaper than any other brand for flatwounds. This would be my first set of flats though so I wouldn't know how to judge if I did get them. http://www.rondomusic.com/product4217.html

I've never heard of them, but what I will say is that, as always, you'll get what you pay for. Don't skimp on strings, cheap strings are nearly always rubbish, so it's not worth it for the sake of about a tenner. Especially not for flats, which you're liable to have on your instrument for a long time.

Tried a set and I'm not impressed. Real dead sounding to me, even for flats. So far, I like the SIT Power Flats the best.

I 100% agree with this.


I may buy a pair of cheap rounds, in a pinch... but flats are usually ALWAYS worth the investment. They should last you for a VERY long time, so i see little problem with paying for quality in them.

Alright. Kinda disappointed but does anyone have any recommendations for flats then? I don't want to spend that much cause I gotta get some new rounds too and those already cost $35.

Chromes always worked for me, I had them on my P bass, my J bass, and now my esquire and duo sonic. I have roto medium scale and guage flats on my mustang.

I have Chromes on my Jazz and love them. I bought some Fender Flats for less than $20 before and used them on a P bass, they are pretty good but I like the quality of the Chromes better

Chromes it is then.

Chromes i prefer new. But, i like La'Bella better after a few months.

Still not 100% on this. I'm really just testing out flats for the first time. Is $50 a waste for that?

If you are unsure of flats as a whole, Fender has flats on MF for less than $20. It will give you an idea, but I don't like them as much as the Chromes I have on my Jazz.

Fender flats are alright for experimenting since they are cheap.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!
