    Ed, many will agree, Thomastik-Infeld are handsdown thee best. They are expensive but, they last a long time (some say years). Check them out. You'll like them. Promise.

    I'd be one of those saying that Thomastiks are the best! Specifically we're talking about TI Jazz Flats JF344, gauges 43-100.
    They have a distinctive feel, so some people won't get on with them, but they suit me perfectly.

    I detest TI Jazz flats: they feel so loose and 'sloppy' to me.

    I use La Bella Deep Talkin' flats- the F/S on my 'P' and the F/L on my Streamer: much higher tension and a joy to play.

    Nice photo, Mart.... :)

    I don't remember hearing about Picato strings so I ordered a set from the UK to try out. Thanks. Ed S.

    LaBella here too (but on the jazz bass)

    T.I. are too expensive for their worth and aren't stiff enough to my liking.
