I bought a pack of Daddario 7 string flatwound strings, ditched the high E and put them on my Baritone. Cost 16 bucks instead of 65 bucks for a set of flats marketed for Baritones. B string ain't even floppy.


:love:

Sometimes I like floppy. :idk: :D

I need to get some flats soon, getting tired of blisters. I more or less play with the town all the way down as it is.

I use half rounds on all of my guitars, absolutely love them.
