Finally found the best flatwounds for me!

Gregg Hermetech, 10.07.2017
I've been playing bass about 30 years. For most of that time I've been using D'Addario Chromes flatwounds on Fender Jazz style basses, but I had started to get annoyed by the slightly metallic edginess to the sound, and after reading lots of reviews of other flatwound strings, thought I would try some out.

At first I tried the Thomastik-Infeld Jazz Flats but hated how rubbery and low tension they felt. The set I had also had different windings on different strings, leading to uneven tone across the strings.

Next I tried the Pyramid Golds, they sounded and felt great, and the tension was good, but in a week I had somehow managed to break the D string, something I have never done at any other time on a bass guitar. I did replace it once, but it put me off them and my interest was piqued by the La Bellas.

So I put these on, they are the largest gauge bass strings I have ever used, and possibly the highest tension, but the beautiful thing about them is that they don't really feel that high tension and are a joy to play. The strings feel lovely under the fingers, and after a couple of weeks of playing in, the tone is to die for. Very evenly balanced in tone and feel across the strings and fretboard. Just what I wanted. Very thumpy, bassy and percussive, with very few overtones and sustain.

No negatives I can think of, other than they are a little pricey, but they will probably stay on my bass forever now. Maybe not for someone looking for bright/zingy/sustained tones. Think old school thumpy Motown stuff, or Reggae bass lines etc. Highly recommended!

If you're after THAT bulky and punchy Motown bass sound, look no further...

Although I myself was slightly irritated by the "Vintage 54" and "James Jamerson" marketing gimmick stamps on the package, I have to admit I was extremely surprised how huge affect these strings just made. If one's after the authentic old school "thump", these strings will certainly produce it. So, as far as the tone is concerned, this is it.

The string gauge is also an essential factor: I used LaBella 760FL set before for a couple years, but couldn't reach that thumpy sound. 760M and 760FM nailed it immediately. So it's not all in your fingers... :)

There are a couple things to complain, though.

First, the strings, and especially the E-string, break rather easily when bent. This might be a real issue, if you prefer loading your strings thru-body, or if your bridge forms otherwise a considerably steep angle. LaBella is offering sets precisely for thru-body usage, though, and I guess that this issue doesn't plague them.

Second, the price... Yes, they are THE classic string, and of high quality. But my personal supposition is, that one is paying relatively lot just for the brand.
