Not a true flatwound
October 2, 2019
I ordered this string, assuming, incorrectly that because it's a Thomastik-Infeld it would be just like an upright bass string, but for electric bass.

This string is wound like a Monel from Rotosound, i.e. closer to a half-round or ground-wound vs. a silky smooth acoustic bass string. The old Dean Markleys I had on my electric fretless bass were perfectly smooth, with no gaps in the top winding.

I was disappointed as this string scores the neck quite a bit.

Can anyone recommend another flat-wound electric bass string that's as smooth as a violin cello or acoustic bass string?, I'm spending a lot of money and not getting what I need/want.
Sounds good, brighter than a true flatwound - fantastic if you have frets. Chews up the neck if you have a fretless bass with a bare wood "fretboard".

Matches the rest of the set well
August 21, 2011
I bought this string to add to a set of TI flats that I already had, and it does match the set well. It also stays fairly tight despite the somewhat lighter than usual gauge for a low B.
