Thread: Cobalt flats on my bass. YES!

    Cobalt flats on my bass. YES!

    I have this clone of Leo's design that deserved flats so I went to GC and picked up a set of Cobalts.

    This is what flats should sound like. Crisp but still thumpy. Other I've tried just make your bass sound dull and awful.

    And somehow, EB keeps the price reasonable compared to other flats of comparable quality.

    I put a set on my 40th Old Smoothie and have been unable to put it down since then.

    Killer flats, aren't they?

    Can't justify another 4. I've completely transitioned to 5ers from a firm in Chicago. Still got my lovely Balls though

    they are some proper good flats

    every beginners bass should have a set
    easy on the fingers, last forever

    trussrod adjustment:
    Click here for an image!
    less relief / flatter = lower action
    more relief / bow = higher action
    do NOT use cheap tools to adjust with. they break and scrape up your bass!

    if you have a 100th namm sr4: the truss works the other way around on those!

    i have no affiliation with eb other than i love their basses

    I really dig these strings. I have them on a P Bass and they are perfect. As soon as I put them on the bass I had to play Superfly!

    C'est moi! Digging them strangs Jack. But I still have a Stingray with TI's on it. Everyone gives me funny looks when I tell them it has flats on it. Then they hear it and I'm like... see.... see! I owe that to you Jack.

    Just put a set on my P Bass. So far, so good, I will be trying them out the rest of this week, so I will have a detailed report coming soon.

    My first impression is they are quite zingy sounding for flats. They also appear to be somewhat high tension.
