      The perfect Beatle Bass String!

      Comments about LaBella 760FHB2 Beatle Bass Flat Wound Light Electric Bass Strings:

      Used for: Performances, rehearsals and recording. La Bella 760GHB2 strings are the perfect match for a Hofner bass. Their tone and playability are outstanding with rich, warm bass sounds and a smooth feel. Through the years I have tried most brands of bass strings with hits and misses. Recently I tried a set of Pyramids and was totally disappointed due to their dead tone and the breakage of a G string! La Bella's have the right amount of clarity, sustain and fast response that is sure to please the most demanding Beatle Bass player. It's taken me a long time to find the right string and I'm a happy La Bella player today. Thanks GC for keeping these strings in stock.

        Comments about LaBella 760FHB2 Beatle Bass Flat Wound Light Electric Bass Strings:

        Finding the right set of strings for a Hofner Ignition Beatle Bass makes all the difference in the world. The stock round wound strings were just too bright for the Beatle, so I tried an expensive set of Pyramid Gold from Germany. I was not impressed with the Pyramid sound at all. The E string was dead with no musical note being produced, sounding like a bass drum. The A string was pretty dead as well. The D string had some musical tone and finally the G string was twangy compared to the other three. What I had was a set of four totally differently voiced strings...yuck! The G string broke during a band rehearsal, so that was it, off they came! I haven't broken a bass string in at least 30 years.
        I ordered a set of La Bella's from GC and they arrived a few days by UPS/US Mail. The LaBella's are a perfect fit , sound completely balanced and have good intonation. The smooth surface is a joy to play on and the tone is full without being muddy (like those doggone Pyramids were).

            Messin' with the bass forever, with about 1 yr experience total. Bought the Rogue Beatle Bass out of curiosity. The strings made it a different bass. Warmer sound, softer feel. Thanks to store behind the scenes Bass man Walter, I am now pleased with the bass and lookin' to sell a Fender Jazz bass.

                I bought these strings because I bought a Hofner Beatle Bass. Oh man! To say I was satisfied is an understatement. These Strings changed my life! I never used flatwounds until I bought these, now I only use LaBella Flatwound Strings on all my basses not just the Hofner Beatle Bass.
