I put these on a Jazz Bass that came with round wounds. Much more solid sound and they play beautifully.
ProsNice feel Flexible Solid sound
ConsNone!

I used these years ago on a Ric 4003
July 15, 2020
And found some in my pile of strings and didn't know what they were it had been so long since I had used them and threw them on my 1979 4001 and loved them right away and had to do research to find out what they were. They're staying on this bass, nice and crisp with a great fundamental. I use La bella Deep Talkin' Flats on my Fenders but these are staying on my Rics.
ProsNot real high tension but are stiff enough to be good finger plucking string and have a nice clear top end as well as a good fundamental. They definitely carve out their own space below the guitars but are clear at the same time. I used them many t=years ago on a Ric 4003 and used to get compliments on the sound and just put them on my 4001 and they sound great on this bass too.
ConsNone that I can see.

Own the bottom
July 23, 2019
If you as the bass player want to own the bottom, as opposed to slapping or dueling with the guitarist, these are the strings to use. Big, fat, bottom. And with careful adjustment of your bass and bass amp tone controls, give off a very acoustic sound. Perfect for jazz. Not for hip-hop or funk.
ProsBig fat bottom
ConsNot for slap style.

Very nice. First flats I have used, chose them because of bass string review online and they were second highest rating and waaaaay cheaper. They are awesome. I wish Fender would lose the green silk though, red always looks best.

Flat wound Fender Bass Strings

I love these strings! They have a deep solid warm sound, just like I wanted. They have accurate tuning, and stay in tune forever! No more tinny round wound strings for me!

Good string :) Great string for the money. Sounds a lot better than chromes in my opinion.

I had used Lakland Joe Osborn flats on my Lakland, and loved the thumpiness. I decided to try the Fenders for my 34" Fender. They are not as thumpy as the Lakland's, and I hope they acquire that quality as they age. From feedback I have heard, I think I may need to try LaBella Deep Talkin' flats. However, the Fenders are servicable, just too bright (at least when brand new) for what I am going for.

Stainless Flatwounds 9050's

 

"The first electric basses were made by Fender and were equipped with flatwound strings to more closely resemble the sound of an upright "doghouse" bass. Today's Fender Flatwounds last longer but still give that fat, warm sound you need for jazz, country or … use your imagination. There's no rules here. Try a set."
