Best Flats for Hi-Flyer bass
I am ordering an Eastwood Hi-Flyer bass and was wondering which set of flat wounds you think would suit it better:
LaBella 760fs 45-105
Pyramid Gold 40-100.
Which one has more definition, more sustain? How are their comparative tensions?
Both are excellent. Pyramids last even longer than Labellas, which blows my mind...because Labellas last for decades.
Labella Deep Talkin' Flats for me...I've had them on an original Aria Diamond (Hi-Flyer predecessor) and they sound great.
My sense is that there is an almost directly inverse relationship between "thump" and "sustain"--the more of one the less of the other. The two brands you mention are both at the "thumpiest" end of the spectrum. Between the two, LaBella flats have marginally more sustain and definition, because Pyramids are just about the thumpiest flats ever made. You may prefer to try a slightly "twangier" flat brand, like Fender, Daddario, or Rotosound (twangiest of the lot, IME).
When I had my Hi-Flyer, I wish I never sold it, I tried different strings and my favorites were GHS Pressurewounds.
