OVERVIEW

Top-notch stainless steel flat wound strings that are built to last.

La Bella Strings is taking a new approach to flat wound bass strings “ the result is the Light Tension Flexible Flats Series. Using the same techniques that have made the Deep Talkin™ Bass Stainless Steel Flat Wounds one of the best-selling flat wound sets on the market, La Bella has adjusted the construction to create a lighter and more flexible alternative to their classic heavier flats.

The Light Tension Flexible Flats deliver the same classic sound but without the floppy-string effect associated with other light tension flat wound strings. These hand-wound and hand-polished strings are equipped with round cores for flexibility, and narrower ribbon wire to achieve that unrivaled smooth feeling uniquely characteristic to La Bella Strings.

FEATURES
  • Stainless steel flat wound
  • Round cores for greater flexibility and narrower ribbon for an unrivaled smooth feeling
  • Light Tension
  • Total Tension in lb.: 134.90 (1st 36.2, 2nd 34, 3rd 30.5, 4th 34.2)
  • String gauges: .042, .056, .070, .100
  • Made in the USA with American wire
  • Packaged using MAP Technology (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) to prevent tarnishing and ensure freshness

    Comments about LaBella LTF-4A Low Tension Flexible Flats Electric Bass Strings:

    initially I purchased deep talking bass strings 45-105 and I put them on my Fender Squier Precision 50's classic vibe. I loved the tone and feeling of them but the high tension meant that I could not play for long periods of time cause my fingers hurt so I was looking for some flats with low tension and I decided to try these and boy was I surprised!....very similar to their cousin in feeling and tone but with less tension. I'm very happy with them.

      Comments about LaBella LTF-4A Low Tension Flexible Flats Electric Bass Strings:

      Initially I bought LaBella 760FS for my Squier classic vibe P Bass. I had them on my bass for about a year. I loved the tone and everything but the high tension of those strings meant that I couldn't play for long periods of time. My fingers hurt and also it put a lot of tension on the neck so after a bit of research I found out that LaBella also makes low tension flats so I decided to give them a try and boy I wasn't disappointed! Very similar tone and feeling to it's cousin but lower tension. Much easier to play. You can even bend the strings and they are not floppy or anything. Awesome.

          Expensive, but worthwhile on a vintage instrument.

          Comments about LaBella LTF-4A Low Tension Flexible Flats Electric Bass Strings:

          i bought this set of strings for a 1976 Lefty Rickenbacker 4001 Bass. I am the origional owner and have always used flats on it due to concerns of fret wear. Another concern of mine was neck tension. I know these older Ric's have had issues when heavy or high tension strings are used. So for this reason i've used only flat and light gauge strings, usually no higher than 45-95 gauge strings. The La Bella Low tension flats have allowed me to go up to 42-100 gauge but with less tension than the 95's. My bass is 40 years old, a lefty, and in great condition, why would'nt i want the best. While high priced, these strings are well worth the cost if they preserve the integrity of my vintage instrument.

            Comments about LaBella LTF-4A Low Tension Flexible Flats Electric Bass Strings:

            Ive used alotta different strings with different basses / flats / rounds / and nylon tape. Certain ones to me sound and feel better with just the right strings. I bought 2 sets of these and put one on a Classic Vibe 50s Squier P-bass and another set on a Rogue Violin Beatle bass. I didn't have to make any adjustments on the neck of either and both had light gauge wounds on before. I like the feel and sound of these on both though they sound a bit different because the basses are 1 solid and the other hollowbody. Good note definition and easy on the fingers, not floppy like Thomastik Jazz flats ( and I do like TIs after adjustments) Iv been playin both a lot after changing to these and found that they do have a break in period where they settle and sound more even string to string. In my opinion they have a deeper bass tone than TIs with a similar feel and there seems to be clarity in the note that I really like. Now I can put these two basses back in rotation with my others and get the ease of play and tone I like with my older fingers.
