I’ve used these before and really like them. Excellent Quality !
Absolutely the smoothest feeling flats ever. AND not dead like my other faves, the GHS precision flats. The TIs are not metallic sounding by any means. They have a beautiful mid range thump. So easy to play.
Sound fantastic, very comfortable, and the low tension encourages me to play with less force, which seems to work out nicely. Warning - they are much longer (around 35 inches from ball to silk) than the “short scale” implies, but they are one of a few flats that can wrap around the tuner without breaking. Great customer support from Jason made this a fantastic experience. Looking forward to buying again from Gimmesomestrings.
I have to start this off by saying that GimmeSomeStrings is doing it right! Great website, GREAT prices and fast dependable delivery. Thank you all for exceptional service! I recently laid out the cash for an all original, immaculate condition 1973 Gibson Les Paul Triumph Bass. Got it, plugged it in, and it just sounded dull and unimpressive. Replaced the strings with several other brands and it sounded better. Until I put a set of Thomastik Flatwounds on, I just didn't have the sound that I was looking for. With this set of strings, I had clarity of the highs, that deep warmth of the lows, and sweetness everywhere in between! Like Jeff said, these strings will make a bass sing!!! You might pay a few dollars more for Thomastik-Infeld, but once you try a set of these you will never go back to the cheap stuff!!!
BEST price in the U.S., FAST shipping, and professional, friendly service. I will be buying from you folks again (best thing since bassstringsonline and Jason went offline!) AND, these strings make a string-through Mustang SING!!!
I already have Thomastik flatwounds on my long scale bass and I think they sound fantastic so I bought this short scale set for my Guild Starfire bass. Other brands of short scale strings sometimes don't fit the Starfire (too short, because the Starfire scale is a little longer than the usual short scale basses) but these fit perfectly and sound fantastic as expected. These strings provide a sound similar to an upright acoustic bass as opposed to the sound of round wounds that sound more metallic.
