    Holy cow, folks... just strung my Valenti 5-string with a set of La Bella Deep Talkin' Bass flats... light gauge (.43, .60, .82, .104, .128)... and wowzers, these things are simply incredible!

    It's been a while since I've used flats... why the heck did I wait so long?

    Superb sound + great feel. They're full, punchy and smooth and they stay in tune quite well.

    There appears to be an increase in tension vs. the GHS Pressurewounds I had on the bass, but that's a good thing as these La Bellas are playing incredibly well... I love what I'm experiencing.

    I don't slap that much these days... so in regard to that, moving to flats isn't a big deal.

    Love the tapered low B string. While many makers' Bs fart out, La Bella's B sounds dynamite.

    If you're frustrated with your current strings and are open to flats, go yourself some!

    Been playing the Labella Deep Talkin' Flats for 20+ years. And the ones I installed when I started using them are still on the basses.

    I also agree, light gauge suit me very well. They agree with a lot of other people - based on past threads, they're one of the most popular strings cited by TB members.

    Just wait until they age for a few months.
    Whole new ballgame.

    Best strings out there for bass, imo.

    They'll get even better?

    Oh yes.
    Flatwounds are a journey.

    I was thinking about these last night for my 5 string Fender Jbass. Currently playing Sunbeams and while they were excellent on my Sandberg 5 string, I don't like them that much on the Fender. This might just have tipped the scales!
