60's Bass Tone!
October 29, 2021
I've used Pyramid Flat Wounds ever since I "discovered" them on my first Alembic back in 1980. Phenomenal warmth and clear articulate tones! They feel great also.
  • Tone for days.
  • Addictive...

Flat wound magic!
March 22, 2021
I have used these on a Jerry Jones longhorn 4 for about 20 years . They are still perfect , no wear on frets or fingertips either ! They intonate and stay in tune extremely well. The sound is perfect, as I didn't like the tone of roundwounds on this particular bass. A professional sixties bass sound, great product!
  • Authentic sixties bass tone. Very comfortable to play.
  • Expensive, but they last forever, so they're worth it.

Great bass strings!

These Pyramid bass strings are awesome. I had installed them on a Hofner club bass and honestly flats are key to Hofner basses. I had an issue with the E string not having enough output, which was weird but I found it was a common problem with these strings. Don't let that deter you though, Strings and Beyond quickly sent a replacement string for me, and that did the trick. Strings and Beyond is my favorite place to order things from, especially Pyramid Strings as they have the freshest strings as well as the best prices on Pyramid Strings. Freshness matters a lot with Pyramid as they're not coated nor are they in plastic pouches/bags just like the old days. I love Pyramid and I love Strings and Beyond, they're my favorite place to shop for strings and picks.
  • great sound
  • no finger noise
  • Won't get enough output from that low E occasionally

Pure Beatles Sound

I got what I wanted and that was McCartneys Hofner Beatles sound. Flat wound strings are easy to play and make almost no noise when sliding your fingers upon.
If you like The Beatles you'll love these strings.

Fabulous strings!

I had been using LaBella Deep Talkin' strings, which do a decent job, but once I put these Pyramnid Golds on my SG, it opened up my sound (no more dull muddiness), and actually made playing easier! These strings are silky smooth, however, they retain a smidge of grip. They are looser than the La Bellas, yet I can set them extremely low, and they do not buzz. They are elegant, solid, fabulous strings! Can't say enough about them.

I would get these again in a heartbeat. Tried to go 'on the cheap' with LaBella flats for my Hofner Galaxie for the Motown Sound. Little did I know that I would genuinely be missing the feeling/texture/break in time of the Pyramid Gold Flats. I got these for my first Hofner Beatle Bass...and will never stray again. Lesson learned. These are absolutely beautiful quality, with a timeless sound. I would buy these again no question!
  • Beautiful, soft string, but with perfect tension and depth of sound. Fit perfectly on Hofners with no adjustment needed.
  • At first I thought the price was too high, but after trying another brand...I realize they are worth EVERY PENNY.

This set of Pyramid Gold 640 strings give such a brilliant and warm tone especially if installed on hollow basses, if your looking for that McCartney old school thump these are the strings you want to get, and once you break them in no other flatwounds sound like these, super smooth strings, no finger noise, perfect tension, the best.

This set actually "fits" the Epiphone Viola Bass guitar without any modifications. The E string tension is not at tight as I like, but the overall sound and ease of play with these strings is unparalled. A perfect combination with the Viola mini-humbuckers for a strong, thumpin' sound.
