Selling my thomastik Enfield jazz FLATS.
SET for 5 strings, standard 34 scale.
They have been cut for fender jazz type headstock (4+1).
They would fit any other type of headstock except 5 in a row type headstocks, but types like 2+3 or 3+2 would work.
They were cut with a lot of extra length.
Haven't played for more than 2 hours, so they're not even broken-in.
Selling them because they just don't work on my 5 string bass, pickup combination.
I have a set on a P bass and they sound fantastic, just not for this specific bass.
Gauges are 043-056-070-100-136
I paid them 70£, was asking 50£, now only 40£! Shipping included within the UK.
Price dropped to £20 includes shipping and you get all packaging and a bonus (discoloured) A string! These cost me £30 from Thomann once shipping and VAT were added and are practically unused. When I received them the A string was a different colour - Warwick kindly sent me a replacement. I’ve only had the D string and discoloured A string on my bass before realising these are not for me - I’m pretty fussy and like a super low tension strings like thomastik flats. These are classed as medium scale (32”) strings but they fit my 34” P bass fine with plenty of winding. Let me know if you have any questions.

Ernie Ball group 3 flats free to a good home.
Bought new in December 2012. Recently changed to chromes for a slightly newer feel and sound.
Really mellow sounding, and dark tone.
Free to collect from Birmingham address. No postage, too much hassle.
Hi there, can anyone help me find the right strings? I have a 1960s vintage bass (from that factory in Japan) that I have really come to like. It has a mellow woody boomy sort of sound, quite acoustic/natural in some registers, and the strings are old. I need to avoid metallic sounding, poppy, twangy strings - I want the sound to stay the same and I don't know where to start! All advice gratefully appreciated especially from anyone who has a similar bass.
A couple weeks ago I was asking what people would like to see in a string comparison video. Well here it is!
I've compared Stainless Steel to Nickel, Hex Core to Round core and Diamond to Platinum (Newtone only)
I'd love to know what you think now it's all done.
I'm pretty new to the youtube stuff so I'd love any feedback. I hope this is helpful for some people, and will save you buying a million sets of strings to help you find what you like.
