Item Description

La Bella LTF-4A-S Short Scale 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

Great sounding and feeling
February 14, 2018
I have an SG bass that originally had steel roundwounds. Unless I used palm muting (with which it sounded very good), it had--to me--a virtually unusable sound, that I can only describe as clanky. Putting on a set of nickel rounds helped a little, but it still did not have a decent sound to me unless palm muting or sticking a foam pad under the strings. I put on a set of Labella Flexible short scale flats (45-100) and it now sounds great with no muting at all--deep and toneful and tight, with an emphasis on the low and low-mids, and very even from string to string. If I lose anything, it is a bit of the liquid-like point-crispness I used to get with the rounds and palm muting. It still sounds good with palm muting, but a little duller, but still with a point. I think the trade-off was well worth it. This bass is a joy to play now for both the tone and the silky feel of the strings. As for the tension--I have TI flats on my Precision and Sadowsky Black Labels flats on my Jazz. These feel about midway between those sets in tension. They are loose enough to bend and even do some finger vibrato, but not what I would call low tension, but comfortable with a useful amount of stiffness. I love these strings. A+.
