Looks like The Henderson

Pedant also comments he's using the wrong hand for bassline

ok.... put flats on, 5 mins later I was thinking how come I never used flats before? Shit this is how this bass is meant to be! I like the spankiness of rounds but fuck that, lovely smooth flats that I'll never need to change, ever :D

Did the fretwork needed yesterday, did a quick level and crown. Polished on the buffing wheel. Bit of tilt in the neck and now with these strings, it sounds/plays like a million bucks!

I can even forgive the coloured ball ends!

Flats are the shizzle. Have them on my esquire and they work well to tame the brightness. Also feel way nicer.

Hell. Now I’m curious.
Do flats tend to have a wound third?

Can you clarify your question? I am unsure what you are asking.
