I love flats too. They are mellower, but also seem to have a much more even EQ response with fat round bass and mids where rounds are kind of peaky mid/treble heavy. They are also just nice to feel, I feel like they make you chill out when playing.
I have some Thomastik flats on my jag right now.

Another string thats really nice are the D'addario half-flats which are rounds that have the tops ground off. They are a nice balance of both worlds. I think low budget flats take this route of taking a round wound and grinding them flat, where as genuine flatwounds start with a wrap that is flat to begin with all around and have a silk inlay between the core and the wrap. The flat thomastiks are really floppy and supple when handling them compared to roundswound strings.
When you turn the knob, it does not sound bad.

Yes to flats on acoustic. I like it as "dry" as possible. :D

I have a set of D’addario 11’s on my Jazzmaster and love them right up to the point when I try to bend that 22 wound G string. I kinda want to try some half rounds since I don’t want to go lower than 11’s, and maybe throw these flats on my lap steel.

Flats on a lap steel are great! :!!!:

I didn't like half-wounds when I tried 'em. For me, they had the disadvantages of both rounds and flats and the advantages of neither. :idk:

:idk: I've never cared for wound g strings on electric guitars... One of my favorite sounds is to bend the shit out of a 29 plain :thumb: fucking hard as string gauge to find though...
