Today was a good day. I went to this meeting in Seattle to get some info about financial aid for college and what not. After the meeting, I remembered I was about 6 blocks away from, that's right, Bass Northwest. I wandered around for a bit, just staring at basses, ing and GASsin' of course. I went over to check their selection of strings and asked for some LaBella flats. Unfortunately (or maybe not...), they didn't have any Jamerson's or Deep Talkin's in stock, just the Tapewounds. So I see the Fender flats, and thinkin' back, I remembered all the things people said about em... and wow... Everything is true about these strings. Put em on my jazz, and boy, they are deep... DEEP! They feel so smooth to the touch and are pretty high in tension (I LOVE that about these strings). I can't wait for that "new string brightness" to go away, I'm sure that these will last me a while. I think these may be the strings for me. I'm gonna try the LaBella's (soon hopefully) and compare them to the Fender flats. I really love these strings, it's like Heaven. Buttery, smooth, deep, thick, heavy. Just what I wanted. So who here uses em? How long have you had them on your bass(es)? Here's to old school thump!
