try the rotosound... i believe those are the best flatwound strings....
Fender makes the cheapest set of flatwounds. They're under $20.Rotosound makes the brightest flats. However, my favourite flats are GHS. They have a neutral tone and a great feel. The purple silk wrapping is an aquired taste, though.
what gauge do you guys recommend... what's the difference?
On my p-bass I use Rotosound Jazz Flats, .45-.105, at a cost of about $30. I tried the GHS flatwounds, but I broke a string in less than 10 days. I probably got a pack of lemons, but I think I preferred the Rotosounds anyway. I used to use Chromes on my Jazz, but now I use XL Nickel roundwounds.
