    The Only String Worthy Of The Hofner Beatle Bass!

    This has been my string of choice on all 3 of my Hofner basses since the mid-1990's. I have tried the Hofner brand strings as well as the Pyramid strings that are identified with Paul McCartney. He had used a lighter version of these strings in the early 1990's and so I thought I'd give them a try. I don't know what makes La Bella's so different from other "flat-wound" strings I've used, but your bass literally comes to life. La Bella's actually give my Hofner's a great amount of sustain, which they aren't known for. When they get about 2 or 3 months old, and start to deaden a little bit, the tone is buttermilk smooth with sustain. I'd recommend these strings, and have recommended these strings for a very long time. Good on you Sweetwater for making them available!

    Beautiful Tone and Presence

    I've tried several flats on my violin bass. They've all sounded dull (even the Rotosounds). Often the E string would disappear completely in a mix when playing in the lower registers.

    These strings are even, with clear tone and balanced presence in all registers of the fret board.

    Perfect for my Guild Starfire!

    I finally got around to purchasing these flatwounds for my Guild Starfire. So far, they sound and feel awesome! The scale length is perfect.
