These could be my last strings!
February 27, 2013
Like many of you, I've tried most of the leading brands (DR, Thomastik-Infeld, LaBella, Rotosound, etc.) in search of the perfect tone contribution from the strings. I'm a flatwound guy, with a '78 P-bass using a custom-wound Bill Lawrence pup, through a mint '78 Fender Bassman 135 into a Fender Neo 115 and a custom Mojotone 2x10, and the only pedals being a JoeMeek FloorQ compressor and a BBE Sonic Stomp.

I go for the fat funk of fingerstyle - no slappin' and poppin' from this dude (but no judgement on those who do). For the last eight years I've had the LaBella Deep Talkin' Jamersons on - the "suspension cable" set of 52s to 110. Yes, they were big on the bottom, but I found I had to EQ out some of the mud, and my fingers were always feeling like they were being punished.

I put the Pyramid Gold long-scales on, and wow, what a delightful difference. Deep and fat, to be sure, but more projection, tonal balance (bass to treble) and ease of playing. The only beef from this vegetarian is that the 1st and 2nd strings were too light for me, so I went 105 - 85 - 75 - 65 instead of the stock set up (I ended up ordering the singles from Germany).

Now I can go another eight to ten years without changing strings - one of the beauties of playing flats. That's only $5 to $7 a year - a low cost for a big sound. I may be done in the Great Bass String Search!
  • Tone balance and depth
  • Feel and playability
  • Projection of sound
  • !st and 2nd string too light for me
  • Lavender windings not my first choice

Love These Flats!
February 20, 2011
These flats are exactly what I was looking for for my Warwick Corvette Fretless. Warm and wonderful, and they are smooth, smooth, smooth. The tension is nice and firm,similarto the Rotosound flats I've been playing for years, but they are responsive to the touch, easy on the fingerboard, and a pleasure to play. Tone is subjective and depends a lot on your instrument and amp, but these strings have that warm, round rumble I was looking for. I play through a Mesa Boogie Venture 2x10 combo with a matching 1x15 extension cab.
