There seem to be a lot of flatwound bass strings on the market that feature a bright tone that's closer to a roundwound string. In fact, some are even advertised that way, but when I choose a flatwound bass string I'm looking for what I call the original Fender Bass sound: smooth and punchy with a strong fundamental and a slightly percussive attack. GHS Precision Flats are one of the strings that delivers this sound, and without too much tension (I choose the M3050 set). They also have a smooth outer surface which is important, as some other brands of flatwounds have an unpleasant "sticky" feel due to the gaps in the outer windings. I've heard people say that these are closest to the original strings that came on vintage Fender basses, and they certainly seem to capture that sound.
