These strings are simply the best flatwounds strings you will ever play.
Steven C. Decarlo
They have a smooth, buttery attack, with a full mid bass tone that have almost a roundwound clarity, with perfect string to string balance.
John Kallas
The feel is so smooth, and the buttery sound gives the bass great bottom tones.

The TI Jazz flats do have strong points as outlined by other reviewers. They have very dedicated users who won't use anything else. I've used TI Jazz Flats for about 7 years. My opinion is that they are pretty good but no string set is perfect for every instrument, every player or every tonal need.

Players looking for the traditional old school flatwound boom of Motown or the stainless roundwound clank of Chris Squire won't find either in this set. The tone of the TI JF344 strings is between the two and sounds a bit like groundwounds. The TI Jazz Flats are a great string for recording use because they are vanilla sounding and lack any tonal extremes.

My main complaint with the TI JF344 set is their low tension. I do not know of another standard scale bass string set of any type with lower tension than these. Low tension can be an advantage on instruments with fragile necks or with maxed out truss rods. However low tension can also be a liability when playing finger style and switching between an instrument set up with TI Jazz Flats and about any other string set. After playing another string set on one instrument you will tend to overplay the TI Jazz Flats at first. The ultra low tension makes the Jazz Flats easy to fret but beware that imprecise fingering or heavy handed fretting can also cause the string to slide or roll completely off the fretboard.

TI Jazz Flats do take some getting used to and do not respond well to aggressive finger style play. In short, they are very floppy. When playing finger style it is like plucking rubber bands compared to any other string set.

I have used this set on the same instrument for over 7 years now. In that time I've done 3 string changes on it. One instrument setup with these is enough for me.

I needed to get some flat wound strings for my MusicMan Big Al bass. I had just sold the Precision which had Fender flat wound strings, the Big Al still had the Ernie Ball round wound strings that it came with, ok strings but not for me. I checked around on the web and asked friends to find out what was recommended, I thought there might be something better than the Fender flats. Thomastik came up more than anything else so I got some. The Big Al has passive and active circuit options that allows you to dial in any kind of sound. I use a David Eden World Traveler combo that will reproduce anything the instrument delivers with clean power and control. I actually tried the new strings out with a couple of the Ernie Ball round wounds still left on to compare, before putting all of them on.

The Thomastik flat wound strings have a full, singing tone that I hear in my head and want my bass to have. With the full tone one can achieve the bright tones that round wounds produce, the deep bassy tones for recording and stage and everything in between with no gaps. There is no change of tone when going from string to string and likewise with the sustain. Each string acts and plays like all the others. Since the Big Al also gets a wide variety of sounds, these strings are an excellent match. The smoothness of the strings are the best part. If you are playing for hours at a time, the Tomastiks will not fatigue your fingers or tear up the frets. Also, if you want to set the action low, these strings will not mind.

If you just cannot get the sound you want from your strings (and you have a decent quality of an instrument) I would say give these strings a try.

These strings are the only flat wound that really sing and have great sustain.
They are a great crowd pleaser, with a really fat fundamental.

Note, they are not for slapping and popping.

My view is that most bands need a bass player to be a bass player, not another
lead guitar player.

I use them on an old Fender P bass.

Surprisingly, they sounded terrible on a Pedulla Thunderbass which is made for
slapping and popping.

I've also used them on Zeta upright electric basses and they sound great on them
and even bow well.

Thomastic is a string maker for all string instruments.

I've had these strings in the short scale variety and now the long scale and I can say these are simply the best flat wound strings you will ever buy. I've been using my bandmate's P-Bass for over two years almost entirely because of how good it sounded. The secret to it's sound = quarter pounder pickups and (these) THOMASTIK flatwounds. If you're on this page it means you are in the market for flats... Stop browsing. Buy these strings. They will last forever and never sound bad .... this is not an exaggeration.

These strings are simply the best flatwounds strings you will ever play. Period!
I have them on my fretless Pedulla Rapture and I can't even think of better things to say for them. They have such versitility, full deep end with smooth mid and high range. They sound better than any roundwound string I have even used. Just as everyone else has confirmed, they last what seems to be forever. I have had them on my Pedulla for two years now and they sound exactly as they did on the first day. Simply put these strings are amazing, and well worth every penny. Keep playing and God Bless!
