Product Reviews for La Bella Electric Bass Guitar Hofner Beatle Bass Flat Wound (34" Wound Length, not suitable for any instrument other than a Beatle Bass), .050 - .100, 760FHBB

La Bella Electric Bass Guitar Hofner Beatle Bass Flat Wound (34" Wound Length, not suitable for any instrument other than a Beatle Bass), .050 - .100, 760FHBB5Steve D.January 15, 2012THE strings to use if you've got a Hofner or similar bass and need that deep, woody Sir Paulie Mac tone, without the characteristic "dead" E-string for which the factory Pyramid flatwounds are (in)famous. IMO a better choice than the .039 - .096 set - the additional tension provides better definition (Hofners can get notoriously "woolly" if you're not careful) and gets the top resonance into the mix; really brought my wife's Hofner 5000/1 Deluxe to life. If you own a CT Beatle/Club they'll put you deep into German-issue territory at one-third the price, and make your Icon sound like a far more expensive instrument (I've heard both); they're also one of the very few string sets with a core wire thin enough to pass through/wrap around those skinny Hofner string posts - shame they don't make a long-scale version to fit the new (and old) President "Stu Sutcliffe" bass...
