Makes a big difference to a HCT 500/1 Contemporary

Comments about LaBella 760FHB2 Beatle Bass Flat Wound Light Electric Bass Strings:

The HCT 500/1 (Contemporary Hofner) comes with round-wounds. I use round-wounds on my Fender Precision, so the Hofner with the original strings sounded very similar to that. My goal was for a more 60's/Beatles sound for variation and I was encountering a bit more "buzz" than I prefer with the original round-wounds. The LaBella flat-wounds made a big difference. In hind sight, perhaps the next gauge up (760FHBB / 50-100) would have been better, because I probably would like a little bit deeper sound. I'm going to try them next time, but you still can't go wrong with these strings.

      Comments about LaBella 760FHB2 Beatle Bass Flat Wound Light Electric Bass Strings:

      Hofner ships their bass with round wound strings. Get rid of them ASAP, you really want the flat wound strings to get the most from your Hofner bass. Differences are night and day, deep bass tones where ever you play on the fret board.

      These strings work absolutely well with my Icon bass. Strings fit perfectly I would highly recommend La Bella Beatle Bass stings for your Hoffer or Icon bass.

            Comments about LaBella 760FHB2 Beatle Bass Flat Wound Light Electric Bass Strings:

            On a recommendation from a luthier, I tried these strings on my Hofner 500/1 '62 Reissue. The Pyramids that were on there sounds dull and lifeless. Once these were on and were allow to settle, the difference was day and night. The low end thump, especially with just the neck pickup on is just awesome. Great clarity and no dead spots. With both pickups and even just the bridge pickup, you really get a great 60's rock sound. Love these strings and will not use anything else.
