PRODUCT DESCRIPTION We’re excited to introduce our latest take on the classic flat wound bass string -- La Bella Gold Flats. Our proprietary golden alloy ribbon wire used for the exterior wrap adds a tonal mid-range unlike any other flat wound on the market. La Bella Gold Flats also offer more attack and are slightly softer to the touch than our traditional stainless steel flat wounds. Our Gold Flats’ beautiful gold finish will look great on any vintage or modern bass.
Due to the nature of the alloy, strings may appear dull over time. To keep your Gold Flats looking their best, you can restore them to their original luster by first cleaning them with rubbing alcohol, then by applying a brass cleaner on a clean cloth and rubbing the strings up and down until brightened. We suggest carefully removing your strings before cleaning.
This particular set is NOT suitable for basses that string through the body.
All standard bass sets are LONG scale length. The 1st (G), 2nd (D) & 3rd (A) strings are 38” from ball-end to silk/taper. The 4th (E) & 5th (B) string are 36 ¾” from ball-end to silk/taper. Only the silk portion of the string should wrap around the tuning post or else the string will break.
