Detroit Flats - The Sound Of The Motor-City!!

Specially wound and polished, Elites Detroit matched gauge flatwound sets are becomingly increasingly popular amongst players looking for a super-smooth playing experience and a balanced, deep, pounding tone.

Great for fretless instruments, they reduce wear on the fingerboard and produce a mellower, upright bass sound. On a fretted bass, you'll get less finger-noise and string-click and a warmer, richer bass tone.

Available in matched gauge 4 and 5 string sets.

Ridiculously versatile, Elites Detroit Flats are equally well-suited for garage rock, driving rhythm 'n' blues, rumbling punk funk, bass heavy trip-hop and deep reggae grooves... not to mention James Jamerson inspired upbeat, melodic soul lines or Iron Maiden-style galloping metal.

Getting me closer to that James Jamerson Funk Brothers sound
Friday, 15 February 2019  | 

Replaced the original round wounds on my Yamaha RBX170 with these strings. The Elites Detroit Flats were a fair price and ordering online was easy and delivery quick.
First impressions were a bit weird (in a good way) - that rasping noise as you run your fingers down the fret board had gone. The strings felt 'soft and smooth'.
Most importantly for me the tone across all four stings was the same. On my original roundwounds the E was a dirty low and G was brittle. I was questioning my choice of reasonably priced guitar but these new strings are getting me closer to that James Jamerson Funk Brothers sound (with some foam under the strings at the bridge).

Put them on my '64 P-Bass... Amazing. Twice the output of others... fat low end with definition, smooth feel...I think I've finally found what I've been looking for...

Will spread the word.

Cheers, Vic from Oakland CA.
