Yes Flats sound better than dead Rounds

There's also the 'feel' or 'touch' thing.

Pro Steels EPS 165 Round Wound - 159.94lbs

Absolutely on the money there. Flats over dead rounds any day.

Currently got La Bella 0760M Original 1954 Flat Wound Stainless Steel 52-110 on the 78 P Bass. They are big high tension strings.
On the Hofner's I have Hofner flats 40/60/80/100. :-)

I dunno if it's the low tuning of a bass, or the 4 strings, but I really enjoy playing mine, must actually get it out and use it...

Does anyone here know anything about using Gibson bass pickups on fender basses?
Are there string spacing issues etc?

Geez, Seems ott.
Nothing like a fretless stingray, stand by for the PINO signature model at twice the price of a regular fretless stingray

Well, they’re quite a comparatively small shop by the looks of things so I understand why they tend to aggressively trim lines that aren’t selling.

I find fretless basses fun but wouldn’t be able to justify owning one.

That parts pbass I won arrived today. Massive shout to Terexgeek who collected it for me in ChCH and slung it my way. We have solid people on this forum. Pictures etc to come.
I was in the mind of maybe putting something HB in it, but surprisingly, the Seymour Duncan quarter pounders are spot on ( with the toan all The way up).
It’s all parts pbass project with a badass II bridge and a drop D tuner gadget.
Happy day.
