For years, even though they love the feel of flatwounds, many bassists have opted to set up with roundwound strings in order to pull brighter, more cutting tones. Ernie Ball has changed that game. Ernie Ball’s breakthrough Slinky Flatwound Bass Strings combine the smooth feel of traditional flats and the modern power and tone of Cobalts. Featuring a Super Bright Cobalt Ribbon wrap, Cobalt Underwraps and optimal hex-core to wrap ratio, the new Flatwound Bass strings are the first flat that can offer the feel of a genuine flat while sounding like a sound.
