    Probably a stupid question, just got my first set of la Bella strings and they have like plastic cubes with numbers on at the end. Do I fit them like that or somehow take these "dice" things off.
    I have only ever used rotos before and can't get any info from the web. Thanks.

    Take them off... They are there to show what each string is as these do not have string envelopes.

    thanks very much, I thought it had to be, but there is not one thing on the net about the dice numbers, so just had to ask the question to be sure. I shall wear the Stupid Hat.

    Can't. Instruments are unfortunately not generic

    Meaning that we would be able to identify the owner of the bass just by the picture of the bass?

    Possibly yes.

    That's what I figured--Bootsy was having difficulty stringing up his star bass.

    Hi....Just joined the this site, and I had the same question, so it's not such a dumb question. I never used LaBella Strings, so never saw this before. So thanks for the great info SlapInPunk. I have a Short Scale Ibanez, put the first LaBella String on. If it sounds as good as it feels, they have a customer for life.
