    I put a set of La Bella low tension flats on my Carvin B40 yesterday. They feel nice like the DTF's on my P-bass but the sound of them are kinda unbalanced. The E string has the typical flatwflatwound sound, the A,D&G are kinda bright in a nasal sort of way. Will the higher strings eventually sound like the DTF's?
    Thanks in advance J.S
  2. I have never tried or used them, but in my experience with strings sometimes they need to be played for a period of time before they settle in. I wouldn't be in a hurry to take them off. Give them some time.

    Fresh from pack, i only found the G string sound little brighter than others on my previous Squier CV50P. After a week i play with it, all the tone from string to string become better balance.
    The only downside i found with LTF4A is both D and G string stiffer than E and A. Tone is balance but not the string tension .

    Thanks for your replies , I plan to keep playing them for a few weeks, they will either darken or I will adjust.
