I'm giving away my (near brand-new) LaBella 0760M (James Jamerson) set. Intersted?

    Hi all,

    Shortly after I purchased my bass (picked up bass playing after a 10 year break) I decided to "nail" the ever-elusive Jamerson tone and bought me a brand new set of LaBella Jamerson:

    La Bella Bass Saitenset 0760M

    20 minutes into playing the new strings I realised that they are just too thick and hard for me to play. Initially, I figured I would persevere through the pain and fretting hand fatigue, and with time my hand would get used to it.

    However, after reading the LaBella 760FL appreciation thread here on TB, I decided to give those a try and loved them (had them installed today in fact!).

    The Jamerson set were used in total for 9 days with moderate playing (between 60-90 minutes a day), just doing groove exercises and practicing my arpeggios.

    I was gonna sell them, but this community has been nothing but great and supportive to me in the 3 weeks that I have been a member, and I figured I'll pay it forward and give them away to someone who wants them, but is not necessarily able to just splash EUR50 on a new set of strings.

    I am based in Vienna, Austria and will ship anywhere within the EU.

    Anyone interested?

  2. Very cool idea! I'm definitely interested but I'm here in the USA; I hope someone from the EU speaks up and grabs them! Cool of you to pass those on.

    Good going, love your thoughtfulness and generosity.

    I'd be on it. I love the 760 FLs, they're on my #1. But always wanted to check out the Jamerson set. (Probably won't set my action as high as Jamerson though!)

    Alas, another Yank here though, so I'll just wish you well on finding them a new home.

    I’m in the EU but I don’t need ‘em. I just wanted to say what a great thing to do. Kudos.

    Edit...just realised I’m not actually in the EU any more thanks to the other 52% of the population
