Very nice shots Fran - btw, what sort of strings are you using there. Are they Sadowsky flats?

thanks.  Smiley

yeah, I'm using Sadowsky flats at the moment. Blue Nickels also sound great on this bass, but there is something about the Sadowsky flats that is pure magic. For many years, I could only keep flats on my basses for 2-3 weeks and then it was back to nickel rounds, but Roger's flats are simply perfect, the right tension, great feeling under the fingertips and TONE: Not dull at all like other flats, just solid low end with nice, present mids and a sweet top end with no 'clankety-clank' noises (for lack of a better word).

This reminds me I need to order another backup set... and a Blue nickel G string that I stupidly cut too short  Embarrassed

Thats interesting - mine arrived strung with what I presume are Blue Sadowsky rounds and thats all I know about them. I've tried DR Hi-Beams & DDT's on it and then settled on TI jazz flats which I have always liked very much. Yesterday I put the Sadowsky strings back on and although I like them I'm now curious about the black label flats that you are using on yours. Any comparison to Pyramids/Chromes?

Sorry to derail the thread - I'd add another gig pic but it seems nobody has posted any of our recent gig yet Sad

I tried the Chromes many moons ago, but I can't remember much about them.

I am very impressed w/ how balanced the Sadowsky flats are. The tone & timbre quality remains constant any where you wanna go. They also have a very nice growl on the low end. The tension is a bit lighter than the chromes that "legion" was asking about. If I had to pick a set of flats that did EVERYTHING well - its the "Sads". (I have only tried the med.ga)

From this past weekend in the local watering hole! Playing the old faithful, the '88 "SWR". I think this bass just gets better every time I pick it up!
