  2. I believe they have ball ends, but I've only played them for a few minutes on a Kay in a shop.

    Different folks have different tailpieces, or like to string the loops up for less downforce or down for more downforce over the bridge. I never thought about it, either, playing steel strings.

    I am surprised: to try to help, I just got done with a 10-minute surf of the LaBella website and some of the better known vendors. Nobody talks about the string end construction, just the general construction and tonal impressions.

    Sorry I couldn't help.

    Ball end.

    Only a very few brand of (non-gut) bass strings can have the ball removed to be mounted in loop fashion. (Jargars and Innovations come to mind)

    i think she is gonna like these john,, they definitely are easier on her fingers,, and they are pretty punchy too,, great tone on the D and E strings and the G just pops.
