Electric Bass 5 String Precision Flatwound 34" Scale, .045 - .126KraigAugust 13, 2011I'm a flatwounds guy. I tend to experiment with different brands on my four string basses because of cost and availability. I usually come back to GHS manufactured flats. When I string up a bass with rounds the field is much more open to other brands, but for flats the GHS has been my favorite so far. Hat tip to D'Addario Chromes, but not quite there. I've used other five string flats that I think are GHS manufactured and I could get these for half the price and I didn't have to get in my car to get them. This bass is 34" scale, but only strings through the body. The B string was a bit too short and it required a call to GHS to get the right one. No cost, so kudos to GHS! The strings themselves live up to my expectations. As stated, GHS makes my favorite flats. It's hard to find five string sets of flats, so I'm glad to have gotten these. I'll give them five stars because they're the best flat wounds I've found, because I've paid twice as much for OEM'd GHS strings with no discernible quality bump and because they corrected the only issue I had with them at no cost other than the phone call.
