Sadowsky Releases Re-Engineered Line of Flatwound Strings for Bass and Guitar
Sadowsky Guitars is proud to announce the official release of their new Blue Label Flatwound strings for bass and guitar.
In a continuing process of refinement, these newly re-engineered flatwound strings incorporate the best qualities of the original Black Label and Blue Label Flatwounds. The result is improved tone, feel, and consistency. Each string is precision wound on a cello string winder for unequalled quality with a stainless wrap on hex core.
The bass flatwounds are superb for fretless basses or for that classic Motown sound. The guitar flatwound strings are equally outstanding for a classic jazz guitar tone.
“Our challenge was to create a string with a true vintage tone and feel that retains a strong fundamental to sit well in the mix,” stated Roger Sadowsky. “Consistency has historically been an issue with all flatwound strings, with sets containing a high frequency of defective strings. Significantly improved consistency was a priority of our new design, especially given the cost and longevity of flatwound strings.”
