I am going to try flat wound strings on my 14 fret Altamira Manoche Drom.
I have recorded it and the high frequency string shriek and sounds are more cutting than any guitar I have owned.
The body and action is very alive.
I think its the loudest acoustic guitar I have.owned.
And I have had full jumbo F Hole archtops.
I assume the construction and set up with the bridge and strings contributes to this dominant treble string noise.
I play solo guitar so there are no instruments to cover up these round wound shrieks.
So, I am forced to tone it down.
I have to get flat wound strings and hope it does two things: mellow the high treble down a bit and cut down or eliminate the round wound string noise.
Any thoughts on flats?
