Product Reviews for La Bella Electric Bass Nickel Plated Steel 6 String Extra Long (38" Wound length), .029 - .128, SN40CB-EXL

La Bella Electric Bass Nickel Plated Steel 6 String Extra Long (38" Wound length), .029 - .128, SN40CB-EXL5BoosgoosSeptember 30, 2010Put these on a Peavey Redwood Cirrus 6. I am used to steel round wounds so these aren't quite as harsh. The upper register is pleasing without being excessive or annoying in the mix. Tapping work sounds good as well. If your a slapper these give a nice full, balanced tone. Not sure about longevity as this is my first set and they are relatively new. The only thing I noticed was with subtle harmonic work where some of the sustain didn't ring as clear as a stainless steel string. But overall for general playability these are great.

"Over the past two decades, the electric bass has shifted from the rhythm section to center stage as bassists have assumed the soloists role. With SUPER STEPS and SLAPPERS, La Bella has followed suit by specifically designing strings to match these technological advances and developing them over a period of years with input from the 'Inner Circle' of professional bassists.

Company President, Richard Mari Cocco Jr. has worked closely with many of the world's foremost bass players to develop the unique design of SUPER STEPS. This product line has a clear and distinct sound while maintaining an exceptionally quick response. These flexible strings have an exposed core at the bridge which helps bring out the high overtone content of each note.

Endorsed by Louis Johnson - the "King of Slap-Slappers", the SLAPPERS product line unites the warmth and feel of nickel-plated strings with the brightness and strength of stainless steel. Their construction includes a stainless steel underlay on a steel core with a nickel-plated outer wrapping."
