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. In keeping with La Bella’s tradition of hand-made products, our artisans use a special grinding process as a first stage to achieve a smooth string surface. Then to realize the proper buffed exterior, a meticulous method of hand polishing is applied to each string surface ensuring a smooth feel and easy playability. We hope you enjoy the hours of craftsmanship that went into each set! 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.
