Thomastik-Infield Flat Wounds
March 28, 2012
I've tried just about every brand of flat wound string available and these strings are by far the best I've ever played. All things being equal I have a set of these on two identical basses and both sound wonderful. These strings are on two of my fretless basses and there is no hint of wear from these strings. I've read that others complain about string tension and brightness of sound, and I agree that the these aren't going to give you that muddy tone many players are after. There are other strings sets that will aid that kind of tone. These strings have an almost lyrical, singing tone that even after they've been used for a while will mellow out. I'm very pleased with them so much so that I've replaced all my strings on guitar and bass with their flat wounds.

Acoustic bass

Well, they sound and feel great. But on my acoustic fretless bass, I need tension so the sound and full tone goes out. I wish Infield did a normal or heavy gauge of these strings. So I believe they're good if you like very low tension on electric basses, and of course, they could be a bit cheaper.

Hi,


I'm a long time user of both DR, and Thomastik strings. Thomastik JF-flats are the only flatwounds I use. They are simply the best strings I've ever played.
I would rate all these products five-stars.
Thanks.

Whether used on fretted or fretless bass, they sound and feel great. Plenty of bang for the buck.

Thomastik-Infeld Electric Bass Flat 36"
November 24, 2009
Since I play fretless bass only, my review is limited to that instrument. These strings have the sound I want from a bass. I maintain that the role of the bass is to provide drive and enhancement and these strings do just that. They are not for everyone, but they are for me; therefore I can have a unique style with this product.

These strings were too long for my Gibson Thunderbird, they were also too light. A bit pricey as well!
