Compared to the price of other flats, yes, these are cheap, but certainly not just cheap and cheerful! Perfectly good compared to the other more expensive brand I had on previously.

Perhaps the best flats out there for the money.
I have now bought a couple of these sets and think they compare favourably.

I am hugely impressed. These strings are noticeably louder than the Rotosounds they replaced. How do you manage to make strings with higher volume? The strings are very slick and comfortable to play. Most importantly, the tone is beautiful too.
The service is very professional. I met Barry at the 2019 London Bass Guitar Show. He obviously knows everybody in the bass world, but he still has time to give help and advice to the 'man in the street'. Thank you

The Detroit Flats from Bass Centre are excellent.
After trying a few different brands of flatwounds over the past few years, I am really happy to have stumbled across these. Sound just as good as strings twice their price. Punchy with a bit of rasp, just how I like my strings to sound. Pleased to say I have found my strings and will be buying these flats as and when I need a new set.
Great service from Bass Centre too!

I love Elites Detroit flatwound bass strings, they’re excellently priced, they’re great to play and they sound amazing.

I decided to change from roundwound to flatwounds on my Bass Collection Power Bass. I was astounded at the quality of the strings for the price and would recommend them highly – ultra smooth, nice tension, and that lovely deep bass sound right out of the packet.
Getting me closer to that James Jamerson Funk Brothers sound

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).
