Upright bass sound.
July 30, 2022
I have been using La Bella Deep Talkin' Bass strings for years. They produce a deep rich sound, similar to an upright bass. The flat rounds eliminate finger noise. The strings are perfect for Jazz or Bluegrass music

Put them on a Hofner CT thin bass and I'm in upright land. Not rigid and easily adjusted for very low action. Smooth (like flats) with tons of bottom and a hint of 'Jaco' in the mids. Don't let the gauge scare you away. The are great on any scale bass and not as physical to play as standard flats.

Cool strings!

I used to use these many years ago, and have been thinking of trying them again.

Some people think nylon tapewounds are dark sounding, but these are the strings that Larry Graham used on "Thank You", and other hits with Sly, and what John Entwistle used on "My Generation".

Black nylon tape

I bought these strings recently for my 63' p-bass. They felt and sounded incredible. The Rotosounds I had on previously were terribly thuddy and sounded like I was playing on rubber bands. The 760N LaBella's really delivered great tone!

La Bella Nylon Tapewounds

I had been wanting to try these strings for a long time, but was always put off by the high price and large gauges which require widening the nut slots on your bass.

Recently I put a set of Roto tapes on one of my Jazz basses and they were so fantastic I just had to give the La Bellas a go for comparison.

Well, there really is no comparison...the Rotos are MUCH better in every way. Where the Rotos are beautifully balanced and even across all 4 strings, every one of the strings in the La Bella set sounds different. These strings are bright and zingy, and the G string in particular is just crazy bright.

I wanted these for thick, old school tone - not sure what they are designed for but it sure isn't that.

Way overpriced and inconsistent. That was exactly my experience with La Bella flatwounds too, but that's another story.

No more steel string squeak!
August 9, 2011
I've put these on my acoustic bass guitar, and love that I no longer get the steel string squeak I was getting with round-wound steels. I'm a bit of an advanced beginner with the bass, and anything that makes it sound good and helps me be more comfortable playing it is a win!

Great for jazz, not so much for rock.

4th String
November 20, 2010
I've found the 4th string too flat (Too little high harmonics) considering the other three.
In fact I would have liked the other three sounding more like the 4th (I like doublebass acoustic sound).
My comment is with the strings on an acoustic bass guitar and both regarding its acoustic sound as its piezoelectric amplified sound.

Nothing Better

I have played bass for 20 yrs professionally for the last 10. I have used all sorts of strings. I finally found Fender tape wounds and loved them. with the only flaw was they went flat quick. Nine yrs ago in Vegas was playing a show and one of the other band's bassist sold me a set of strings before a show since mine went to xxx. Played the show with them and instantly fell in love with them. He told me what they were and I have never played another string again. The warm tone and overall playability of these strings are bar none the best the only draw back to them is "usually" the price (which till now I was paying up to $75 a set) but the price is well worth every penny if you are a serious bassist.

Superb Product!
November 25, 2009
I really like the Deep Talkin' Bass Strings and use them on my Warwirk Corvette fretless exclusively. I find they produce a very versatile sound. I play a lot of gigs where normally an upright would be used but the warm and non-btting tone these produce sound so much like an upright, even veteran listeners often mistake it for one. I have virtually no fret board wear and the strings last much longer than the standard nickel and stainless steel types I formerly used. When I purchased my Warwick 8 years ago it was recommended that I use nylon strings to reduce fret board wear and produce an upright like sound, so I restrung it immediately with La Bella nylons and haven't changed since. This is one helluva product and I highly recommend them.

La Bella Tape Wound
November 14, 2009
I love these strings. I put them on my acoustic bass guitar and now it sounds much more like a standup bass. The feel is great, similar to a flat wound string. Sounds great when I play with other acoustic players.
All standard bass sets are LONG scale length. The 1st (G), 2nd (D), 3rd (A) strings are 38” from ball-end to silk/taper. The 4th (E) string is 36 ¾” from ball-end to silk/taper. Only the silk should be cut or else the string will unravel. Also available in Extra-Long Scale as 760N-XL.
