Elites 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 driving rhythm 'n' blues, rumbling punk funk, bass heavy trip-hop and deep reggae grooves... not to mention James Jamerson inspired melodic soul lines or Iron Maiden-style galloping metal.

Love these flat wounds...
Thursday, 15 September 2016  | 

My Detroit bass came equipped with Elites Detroit Flatwound Series strings, which is my main reason for purchasing my bass.

I love the warm thump these strings produce and they really give you an authentic "old school" tone.

Nice warm tone!
Tuesday, 3 March 2009  | 

As the title say these string have a really nice warm tone, I have them on my Overwater Perception fretless and they just sing! One downside is the low B is a little short for the 35" scale and the bindings on the string come just past the nut, seemed strange as the other strings are more than adequate.
