First, let me apologize for my poor english. I am from Barcelona (Spain) and this is not my mother tongue.
I have recently bought a Fender electroacoustic bass, the Kingman SCE.
In their webpage, Fendes states that the strings that comes with it are the D'Addario® EXP™ PBB170, (.045-.100 Calibres).
I've been checking your offer of strings for electroacoustic bass guitars and the only choice is Phosphor/Bronze.
Since I love the touch (and tone, cleanliness, long life, ...) of flatwound steel strings, I always use this kind in my electric (fretted) bass. And I wonder if I could do the same with my brand new electroacoustic bass, replacing their original strings for a new set of flatwounds.
But I am hesitating, since I really do not know if, maybe, the increased tension could damage the top (or the bridge) in the instrument.
So, my question would be: May I put flats (safely) in my acoustic bass or should I resign myself to use only Phosphor/bronze strings?
Thank you in advance for your answers.
