Very Light Not for Bangers

My E-mail to La Bella.

I'm very disappointed in your Deep Talkin' Bass 760-FD Danelectro Longhorn Style Bass Strings. I have an early 90's Longhorn bass and always used Rotosound strings. I ordered a set of your flat wounds and the string tension was extremely inconsistent. The .42 G and the .56 D strings are relatively higher tension than most bass strings I've used, and the .83 E is extremely low tension. The .65 A for some reason was so floppy, the output was almost non-existent. I then tried to tune it up an octave, and the string broke at the wind.
Also, let me just add, I work at a music store in Louisville, KY. I also build guitars and basses. This was not a mistake due to user error. We sell a lot of strings, of numerous brands.....La Bella being one of them.

I have a vintage short horn bass, and a vintage Dano double-neck guitar/bass. These strings are the only way to go. You might be able to get other short-scale strings on your Dano, but they wont sound or feel right. I tried D'Addario short scale chrome flats on both. It works, and its a lot cheaper, but these basses were just not right. The La Bellas are the only string I've found designed specifically for the Dano short-scale. There is nothing you can do about the slightly "flimsy" feel of a 30" scale length. But if you want the most out of your Dano, go with these. You won't be disappointed.

Perfect for the Dano bass

Gets the perfect, vintage sound from my Danelectro Longhorn. The original Dano basses needed the super light gauge because there was no truss rod in the neck. The reissues have truss rods but these are still needed for the great sound and playability. Worth the money. And they stay in tune just fine.

awful strings

I've been playing bass since the 1960s and though I like some other labaella strings these are terrible for my Danelectros. I orderd two set and an expensive pice. They will not stay in tune and are very flimsy. Don'y waste your money.

If you want flatwounds for the your Dano Longhorn bass, these strings are the way to go. (In fact, they may be the ONLY way to go, as finding flatwounds for the Dano by another company is hard to do...) No matter, as these play and sound great. I've always liked flats for recording soul and R&B, but these can brighten up nicely, too. Very comfortable and easy to play.
