Great sounding strings, long break-in period.
August 10, 2021
Truly exceptional craftsmanship from LaBella. These strings are well-made, highly polished, and they sound amazing. Just make sure you know going into it that there is a pretty substantial break-in period before they really hit their prime in terms of both feel and tone.
ProsExceptional build quality, wonderful sound.
ConsLong break-in period.

Put these on my '73 Precision and FINALLY got the classic 70's sound I've been searching for. Very happy with these strings. The La Bella's with a foam mute really did the trick!

Very Enjoyable Switch

I previously used round wounds on this active parts-Jazz Bass fretless and always considered flats to be of less character. I switched to the Deep Talkiní Flats just to give it that one chance and used this fretless for many days of practice and at rehearsal. These strings did give this instrument that something extra I had been looking for and am glad I made the switch. The music we play is primarily electric/acoustic with venues ranging from occasional large event stages to small clubs. People listen for the bass to be in the right places not for db, or hertz. I have yet to hear a audience member tell me to Ďdial iní or minus ďmidsĒ or some such. This bass has been improved by the LaBellaís. Iím not a complete flats convert but, I am quite pleased. I may even try LaBellaís on a fretted bass.
ProsNice punctual tone. I found this pleasantly surprising.
ConsThe bass itself needs some refinement not related to the strings.

I love these strings. I've been playing for a long time, bought my First P bass in 1971 and of course back then they all came with flats. A few years later rounds came into fashion and I used them for years along with using different basses. I bought a P bass again a few years ago and put some Labella Deep Talkin Flats on it, the 45-105 set and it is like going back to a favorite place, these strings play and sound exactly like I want a bass to sound, very clear or thumpy, depending.... and have the perfect tension for playing fingerstyle, these strings were made for Fender Precision basses. I use them for both blues and rock n roll, they cut through with any band I play with, they carve out their own sonic space along with the kick drum. you want your bass to sound like a bass try them, you won't regret it.

I need to tell the back story on how I came about a set of these. I normally buy from JS and I normally buy GHS Boomers. About 2 years ago I built a fretless J style bass and I tried a set of GHS round wounds and very quickly learned that Jaco, I ain't. I decided to try a set of GHS flats and though I really love the GHS brand I didn't like the flats feel or sound so I stopped into a local music store and the owner was taking a set of these off of a bass and asked me if I wanted the set at a really cheap price. He said they were the best flats in the world to put on a fretless. So, I put a used set of Labella flat wounds on my bass and haven't looked back. It is very difficult to describe the sound and feel other than it is what I have been looking for in every way, sound, feel, touch. Try them and I hope they work for you.

My second try in the flat arena. First I had Fenders, they just seemed dead sounding, thump and die. Swapped out for LaBellas and my Squier 50's P came alive. Growly, yet very musical sounding. Less tension than Fender and more sustain. Exactly how I wanted my P to sound. I recommend them if you want to get into flats.

Worth the price

At first I was skeptical about these strings because I've tried the La Bella 1954 "Jamerson" flats and even though I enjoyed them, the heavy gauge was a risk I was afraid to take. I bought these cos I wanted to give La Bella another chance and didn't know who they would compare to the Jamersons.

So far, I really like them. I've tried three different types of flat wound strings (Fender, D'Addario and La Bella) and all three are strung on respective basses in my arsenal. I play the one with the La Bellas the most. They aren't as rough as the other two strings and the tension is lower, which I'm enjoying thoroughly. The sound of these strings at first was ok, because they had a fair amount of top end so I'm waiting for them to break in and I know that they'll sound even better. Right now they sound good and I'm using them on my MiM Standard with Basslines SPB-1 pickups, and I like the combination. I gave 'em 4 stars cos of the top end, whereas I was used to the Jamersons which were already broken in, to some extent, and didn't have that top end.

All in all, I'd recommend these for someone who wants a good set of flats at a decent gauge. I admit I'm growing to like them more than the other brands I use, so we'll see what happens then.

I have had these strings on my Rickenbacker 4003 bass for a couple of weeks now and it has given me the Ric sound I have been looking for. I play in a rock covers band and the sound combination is perfect. Nice sold feel as well. Don't think I will be looking for any other strings for my Ric!

Pulled the round wounds off my brand new Breedlove acoustic electric fretless the day I got it and replaced them with the 760FS strings. Great acoustic tone with lots of body.

Been playing bass for several years and was never completely satisfied with any of the strings I had been using. The instant I put these flat wounds on, I was hooked. They're easy on the fingers and the tone is absolutely beautiful; the sound I had been seeking for years. Will continue to buy and use these strings exclusively.

I use a 97 American standard Jazz with maple neck. I have tried a few different less expensive brands with moderate success. I have a set of 45-105 La Bella's on now...wow. They are the strings i have been looking for. They are not boomy on the low end and when driven hard, they have a growl like I've never heard before. I love the sound of these strings.

Amazing strings. my fretless has a tone that is simply fantastic. They are the best strings I have ever had on any of my basses over the years. When you find that sound that just leaves you wanting to play more, you know your bass will never be far from your hands.

The best
December 14, 2010
I've been playing for many years, and these flatwounds are the absolute best for fundamental-heavy fingerstyle with no fret noise. The standard gauge is also a perfect string-for-string match to factory specs for my beloved Warwick.

On my 1997 Fender American Standard Jazz Bass the tone is outstanding.

I've been on a "quest" for the ideal flatwound string since I took up bass 5 years ago. My mentor gave me only five rules to follow: never play chords, never slap, mute more than you play, stick to passive basses, and only use LaBella flats. I mistakenly broke the last rule for about three years and tried everything I could get my hands on. For the last year, the 760FS set is the only thing I use, on all of my basses - fretted and fretless. They are the most expressive and musical I've tried for my playing. Bonus: they stay rock solid in tune, and, unlike me, age beautifully.

These strings are just right for Blues and Rhythm and Blues.The Bonus is they sound great for months and they stay in tune better than any other string I have used.

I play a 62 reissue J bass,this guitar is everything you would expect a J bass to be, classic single coil tone, with lots of growl if you dial it in. I wanted to tame the beast a bit and warm up the tone without losing it. The 760 Standard Flats did the job very nicely. I'm now able to coax my J a lot closer to sounding like a P bass, for the old R&R thing, and turn the mids and highs up a bit and you have all the bite and growl you want, only with way more power behind it,due to the nature of these strings. My bass seems to stay tuned better, and for the first time, after intonation, the bridge saddles are in a more normal configuration in the bridge, not all over the place like before, with previous strings.
These strings aren't for slapping, but that not what you buy flats for anyway.
I live in Canada, and I tried to buy these strings for three months close to home, finally I was told that the strings had been discontinued, so maybe I'd like to buy a different string that they had in stock. That night I ordered them from Just Strings, and had them in my hands in just over two weeks. So big thanks to J.S. for the great service and great strings. Mike.
Important note: La Bella flat wound strings are not suitable for use on instruments that require through-body stringing.
