An excellent option for bass

09.03.2017
I'd previously used these on a short scale Epiphone Viola bass, but this time I was replacing roundwound strings on a Washburn Bantam normal scale instrument. The improvement in tone and the enjoyment in playing was immediately very noticeable and pleasing. Of course, you need to be a fan of the more organic 50s/60s sounding bass tones to appreciate this. If you prefer a more modern metallic clunk then it's best to stick with roundwound strings. If you like flatwounds then I'd say these are among the best you can get, and the Thomann price is very reasonable. If you are a guitarist (like me) who has tried and disliked flatwounds, then it's worth being open-minded when it comes to bass as the needs of guitar and bass are very different. For electric guitar, roundwounds were a significant step forward when they were introduced. For bass there's extremely useful and different sounds to be heard when you switch from one to the other (if someone could invent an instant way of changing between the two they would be onto something). All in all these are highly recommended - an easy way of unlocking a whole different sound to your bass.

Great Strings and usual Thomann excellent service.

Ive been a long time La Bella flats user but recently was suffering from hand fatigue due to the high tension. Initially I tried a set of Thomastik Jazz flats but these were too low tension and lacked that traditional flatwound thump. Since then I have tried Fender, Elites, Chromes (awful), Roto and Picato (they were VERY good). I was recommended the Pyramids by a local player who described them as thumpy but not overly high tension, La Bella like smoothness to the touch and a nice growl when you dig in.

Being a P bass player (mainly with a pick and always through a dirty great valve amp) these sounded ideal. Once they arrived I strung them up and immediately noticed the lovely smooth touch and reasonably low tension (higher than TI?s but not La Bella tight). The E string does sound slightly more muted than the rest but I believe this is common and the other strings break in and catch up after a few weeks of playing.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
