Item Description

La Bella LTF Low Tension Flexible Flats

La Bella Strings is taking a new approach to flat wound bass strings – the result is the LIGHT TENSION FLEXIBLE FLATS series. Using the same techniques that have made the Deep Talkin’ Bass Stainless Steel Flat Wounds the best-selling flat wound set on the market, La Bella has adjusted the construction to create a lighter and more flexible alternative to our classic heavier flats.

The Light Tension Flexible Flats deliver the same classic sound but without the floppy-string effect associated with other light tension flat wound strings. These hand-wound and hand-polished strings are equipped with round cores for flexibility, and narrower ribbon wire to achieve that unrivaled smooth feeling uniquely characteristic to La Bella Strings.

-Stainless Steel Flat Wound
-Round cores for greater flexibility and narrower ribbon for an unrivaled smooth feeling
-Light Gauge 42-100
-Total Tension in Lbs: 134.90 (1st 36.2, 2nd 34, 3rd 30.5, 4th 34.2)
-String Gauges: .042, .056, .075, .100
-Available in long, medium, short, and extra long scale
-Made in the USA with American Wire

Those strings are a revelation!

Wow! I've played other brands and even LaBella DT before and quite never really been happy and into the flat string sound and feel until I decided to try these on my 50's P-Bass Re. Instant love, I mean I couldn't keep my hand off of the fret board, played these strings for at least a month straight and everyday! Now I've put a set on my Gretsch Full-scale hollow-body and boom, this bass is another beast with the Labella Low Tension Flats! It now plays like butter and the E-string fully blooms like it should!
  • Really easy to play. They have the right amount of growl. Very sensitive.
  • None so far....

Have had these on my G&L Jazz bass for about 2 weeks now, and they sound fantastic. These are NOT TI's- they feel much like them, but they sound like LaBella DT's with some midrange growl if you EQ them correctly ( maybe a touch brighter, but that's probably my bass). You will need to add (loosen) at least a quarter turn of relief to your neck, and drop your pickups 1/32". These strings are really sensitive, and hot pickups will throw your intonation out ( I had to sharpen the intonation on the G a few turns). When you first put them on, it will sound like you're playing 2 different basses: the G & D are very bright compared to the A & E, and at first the A sounds dead. Swab them down with alcohol before you put them on (they're dirty!), do some adjusting,be patient, play them A LOT. Allow the strings to acclimate- the A string will come to life, and your bass will sound fantastic
  • Sound great, very responsive, wonderful feel, and easy on your instrument- worth the effort.
  • The effort- you will need to adjust relief, pickups and intonation, and you need to give them time to mellow out.
