THE sound for a Hofner bass!

Andy D, 12.04.2017
I bought these strings for a Hofner Ignition Club bass guitar and they fit perfectly - not surprising, given the history and association between Pyramid and Hofner (there's an interesting leaflet included with the strings regarding this).

In short, these flatwound strings instantly evoked the sound of the 60s and 70s. Very thumpy on the E and A strings while retaining clarity on the D and G strings, so well balanced across each string.

I've had issues with short scale flatwound strings in the past in which they've sounded 'dead' or the tension in the lower strings mismatched to higher tension in the higher strings. The Pyramid Gold strings feel even across the strings.

Soloing the neck pickup on the club bass, these strings really stood out with a deep rich tone - very vintage sounding and comfortable under the fingers - some flatwounds can feel a little rough, but not the Pyramid Golds. Soloing the bridge pickup, I gained a more cutting tone, especially when played directly over the pickup, sometimes nuances between pickup selection isn't noticeable with some flatwound strings.

In summary, I would recommend these strings without hesitation - although a small detail, the dark green silk wraps around the ends of the strings look classy too! A nice alternative to LaBellas!

Possibly my favourites

31.03.2016
When I bought Pyramid Gold I thought "too much expensive maybe". Nothing could be further from the truth! These strings are worth every single penny. And they would be worth even at twice their price. I use them on my Hofner beatle bass, for recording mostly. Really fantastic sound, perfect for an Hof bass. Nice fundamental, great attack, pretty old school strings. They are one of the most comfortable strings ever played, not loose at all neither too tense. I'm often tempted to put Pyramid Gold on every bass guitar I own, they really can make you smile. Anyway you have to know, before you buy them, if they're the exact type of strings you are looking for. If you want modern sounding flats, you'd better stay away from Golds. If you want that great Macca's sound, you've found the Holy Grail of strings.
