Best strings for Godin A4 fretless semi-hollowbody?

    I just got a used Godin A4 fretless. I like the flatwounds that are on it, but I'm curious about the La Bella Tapewounds and the TI flats.

    I'm leaning towards the La Bellas, since they would be a more "different" string from what's already on the bass.

    Opinions are greatly appreciated. :)

    Anyone know the best place to get La Bellas? Their website is most unhelpful. :rolleyes:

    I have labellas (bought from Carvin) on my fretless P.

    I can't say enough good things about them. They sound fantastic.

    Max will be here soon to say "TI Acousticores"

    I'm using the OEM flats on mine (Daddario Chromes ECB81 IIRC) and like them pretty well (my A4 is fretted).

    Use to have a few Godin's and I like the D'Addario Chromes. There were a good choice for that bass.

    I played Tornadobass' A4 with TI JF-344's..real sweet! That experience sold me on the TI flats.
     
  6. I think Rotosound Tru-Bass tapewounds sound awesome on a fretless.
