very good on Warmoth med scale P bass
July 22, 2021
These strings are really fantastic. I've been playing for a couple of years with diaddario flat wounds. These are much better - deep tone yet fully defined and clear notes. This is what I've been looking for. This is on a Warmoth 32 inch P bass with fender V mod (1) pickup. Just fantastic P bass sound.

Hard to find good strings for medium scale basses. These strings are well balanced across all four strings and provide the old school sound I had been seeking. Give them a month or two to "cure" as they lose that twangy "new string" sound. Like the other reviewer said, just enough treble to complement the deep bass. Moving from roundwounds took a little getting used to as the La Bellas are ultra smooth.
ProsPlay and sound as expected.

Great strings, great sound
May 13, 2014
I've been using the 760FL set for more than a decade. Don't worry about the negative review, because it's irrelevant. Labella tells you these strings aren't for string-through.

What these strings do give you is lovely low end without losing enough treble to have good articulation and sound in a mix. Even better, they last for a decade or more. For a traditional bass sound you can't improve on Labella Deep Talkin' Flats.

I prefer this gauge because the strings are easier on my fingers and quicker when playing without giving up great sound.

Well I gambled..it says not to use these on through the body bass...well it broke string $50 down the drain. I was able to get same string Mustang custom set from Elderly Music and worked great!!! Most people say the custom set is dicontinued but seams to be a back order item you can get. Listen to the warning dont use these on through the body bass....
Important note: La Bella flat wound strings are not suitable for use on instruments that require through-body stringing.

La Bella Strings

"The origin of the use of catgut for the strings of violins and kindred instruments has, from time to time, been explained in various ways.

The most interesting, and probably the most authoritative explanation seems to be the one known among violin makers in Italy for centuries, but little known outside the country. The story is related by Joseph Primavera, who gathered his material in the little town of Salle, Pescara, Italy, a town that has had for almost six centuries the making of catgut strings as its chief industry, and from which some of the finest strings in the musical world have come.

It all goes back to around 1300 AD, it seems, when Salle was already famous for its saddles. Not the least important feature of these leather products was the fact that a thread made from the intestines of a mountain sheep was used in sewing them. This thread was found to be far stronger than that made from more domesticated and better cared for sheep of the valleys.

Tradition at Salle says that at the dawn of the fourteenth century one Erasmo was employed in the chief industry of the town, the making of saddles. As this man was drying some sheep intestines in order to make his thread, some were carried away by the wind, and became lodged in a thorn bush.

Erasmo noticed that sweet musical sounds were emitted as the material was vibrated by the wind blowing through the bush. Being an observant man, and an ingenious one, the thought came to him that the threads used in sewing saddles might also be used as strings in the primitive instruments that were ancestors of the violin. Thus the business of making violins strings from "catgut" (more will be said later regarding the origin of the word itself) began, and so important did the industry become to the small town that eventually Erasmo was sainted, and St. Erasmo is not only the patron saint of the town, but also the profession of string making.

When asked regarding their strings, the people of Salle, so the tradition states, said that they were made of the intestines of cats, "catgut". There was good reason for this. The cat was viewed with superstition in Italy, and the slaying of a cat was supposed to be followed by a period of bad luck. The fiddle string makers of Salle reasoned that few indeed would attempt to copy their trade, if it involved slaying cats.

Mr. Primavera, by searching church records, found that from the beginning of the industry in the time of St. Erasmo, until about 1700, four centuries, the families of Berti, Dorazio, Mari, and Ruffini were famous for making violin strings. These families furnished the strings for products of Stradivarius and other master makers of violins during this period. About 1640 Mari Brothers became the leaders in the manufacture of "catgut" strings. This tradition is followed today by the same family. E. & O. Mari, Inc., located in Newburgh, New York, USA carries on the tradition. Many of their products are marketed under the world famous name "La Bella". These music strings are recognized as the finest the world over."
