Electric flatwound strings on an acoustic bass

I’m thinking of getting an acoustic bass guitar.
The one I have in mind is the Dean EAB Jumbo (since I’m still a beginning bass player, I don’t want to spend $1000 on one)
I have LaBella 760FS Deep Talkin Bass flatwound strings on my electric (.045/.105), and I love the sound and feel of them.
Would these same strings work on the Dean?

I have Deep Talkin Bass tapes on my Fender acoustic and love it.
I initially got a cheap Karerra acoustic and tried Chromes but didn’t like them, it now wears the Fender rounds the Fender came with and sounds a lot better.


I’ve been here.
The one thing I can say about an acoustic is sit with it a while, a long while, before you buy.
“Jumbo” would scare me away fast.
I had a Michael Kelly Dragonfly (actually a beautify bass and beautiful sounding) and it was huuuuuuuuuge. Paris Hilton huuuuuuuge.
Couldn’t deal with the size, so uncomfortable.

I like the ghs pressure wound Bronze strings on mine

I’ve heard that too about jumbos. I had a dreadnought acoustic 6 string, so I’m used to the big size. I actually was able to sit down with a jumbo acoustic bass (along with a couple cutaway acoustics) and I actually liked the feeling of the jumbo the best. The smaller basses felt too small. I guess it depends on what you’re used to.
