Comments about LaBella 760FHBB Beatle Bass Flat Wound Standard Electric Bass Strings:

Love these strings! I put this set on my Epiphone Viola electric bass, These strings are articulate and smooth. Running down the fret board feels like silk. Tension is very nice and had no problem with intonation. They are made well and should last a long time. I have tried several brands of flat wounds and these are perfect for my bass.

    Comments about LaBella 760FHBB Beatle Bass Flat Wound Standard Electric Bass Strings:

    Recently bought a Hofner violin bass. Did research and saw Mc Cartney as well as Jamerson and Duck Dunn used LaBella flats. Produced that deep thumping sound perfect for classic rock.

        Needed Flats for a Hofner Ignition Bass but didn't want to pay tons for "Pyrmirds". Tried Fender but they were too long and need to trim them. When I did they unraveled. I trimmed the Labella's with no problem. I dreaded playing flat wounds but these are easy to play. Really smooth and great sounding.

            Comments about LaBella 760FHBB Beatle Bass Flat Wound Standard Electric Bass Strings:

            As the name suggests, these flat wound strings are designed and scaled for the Hofner and Epi Viola-styled Bass guitars. I've tried other strings looking for a brighter tone but had intonation issues (despite being set-up properly) so went back to the La Belle strings. Warm, punchy tone.

            Comments about LaBella 760FHBB Beatle Bass Flat Wound Standard Electric Bass Strings:

            I put these on a shortscale acoustic bass and they sound pretty good, a nice balance between 'woof' and 'cut'. This bass in the 'b squad' so normally it gets the the left over chromes after I restring my fretless, but these blow them out of the water. Smooth with enough tension to feel precise but not too tight. Thinking I'm going to have to get a long scale set for my fretless now...
