Experience with La Bellas is hit and miss...
November 30, 2019
Feel is good. Went really dead quickly, a couple of weeks in, and so quite unbalanced sound from string to string. Took it off and now it sits in the spare string box. Not worth the high price thus the three stars. Heres the back story...

I bought this to replace a weird sounding .110 string from their original 1954 set (Jamerson set). That was one bum string that bummed me out. So this .109 was ok, fairly balanced with the Jamerson set. Overall not my favorite set of La Bella flats even with the new .109 . Then paired it with three strings from their perfectly balanced .104 set (where that .104 had busted when it went through the body of one of my basses, maybe you can see the hit and miss with La Bella.)

This .109 was ok but it went dead quick, very unbalanced sound from string to string. But on that bass I finally took a La Bella .105 from another old set and put it with those 3 strings from the .104 set and now all is well. So the moral here is, that .104 deep talking perfectly balanced flat set is the one Ill buy again when Im back in the States. Better than Chromes, smoother feel and livelier sound than the other two La Bella flat sets mentioned here. Had that .104 set for years and they still sound bright, clear, good for slap and finger style, Motown to rock, and just enough tension for drop D tuning. Sorry for the confusion of my mix and match history but maybe someone can benefit...
Pros
  • For the price, none whatsoever.
