La Bella Slappers SN40CB
These totally exceeded my expectation. I have a Zon Legacy 6 and have tried many strings from Ken Smith, Zon, and D' Addario, and so far have liked these the best. I usually use regular gauge, except for the D'Addario that use a .100 E and .80 A. Even though the 40B set is significantly lighter, they don't feel like it. Bends and tapping are much easier, but the strings are not floppy at all. The harmonic overtones are immense and produce a very detailed growl that is even apparent on the neck pickup, which is usually rather smooth and boomy on my Zon. Depending on player they may require a lighter touch, but I usually play pretty light. Plus adapting to the lighter touch should be fairly easy and you will notice a speed increase on your fretting hand. The only complaint is that the B-string is a little floppier than what I am used to, but the bass has a 34" scale length, and the gauge is .118 where I am used to the D' Addario .130. Overall exceptional and highly recommended.

"Over the past two decades, the electric bass has shifted from the rhythm section to center stage as bassists have assumed the soloists role. With SUPER STEPS and SLAPPERS, La Bella has followed suit by specifically designing strings to match these technological advances and developing them over a period of years with input from the 'Inner Circle' of professional bassists.

Company President, Richard Mari Cocco Jr. has worked closely with many of the world's foremost bass players to develop the unique design of SUPER STEPS. This product line has a clear and distinct sound while maintaining an exceptionally quick response. These flexible strings have an exposed core at the bridge which helps bring out the high overtone content of each note.

Endorsed by Louis Johnson - the "King of Slap-Slappers", the SLAPPERS product line unites the warmth and feel of nickel-plated strings with the brightness and strength of stainless steel. Their construction includes a stainless steel underlay on a steel core with a nickel-plated outer wrapping."
