La Bella's Standard Deep Talking Strings.

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Bluez Dawg, Jan 30, 2006.

  1. Pros
    1).They totally rock.
    2).Not bad price, and about $50 per set.
    3).Nice feeling, and nice looking strings.
    4).Nice bottom end.

    3).if you're used to normal strings, other then flatwounds they will feel wierd at first, but very well worth it.

    This is a mini review of the La Bella's Deep Talking standard strings, guage 45-105, Very nice set, and the black nylon tapes ads a little flare to them.

    yea Labella nylon tapewounds are great, they arent flats though

    they are roundwounds wrapped in nylon. Also has em for real cheap

  3. I can show you they are flat wounds, I have the package they came in, even the store owner said they where flat wounds.

    I think you mean the black silk at the ends? The Deep Talking flats and the nylon coated strings are different. I also don't think any of the nylon wrapped strings come in that small a guage.

  5. I can take a picture of what I got, I could show you guys.

    edit:> Here is the photo of the strings I use [​IMG]

    Everything seemed fine until you said "black nylon tape". The term "flatwounds" is usually reserved for strings wrapped with flat metal ribbon as the outer wrap. If the outer wrap of the string is flat nylon, they are usually referred to as "tapewound" not "flatwound," even though they are both flat wound strings, if you will.

    So, are these the metal-wound Deep Talking Flats or the nylon tapewound Deep Talking Flats?
  7. These are the flat wounds, but they black ends near the tuning pegs though.

    Yep. Them'r flats. That stuff at the end is referred to as "silk." Now we're all on the same page.

    Thanks for the review.
  9. Finally! These are so awsome they sound good as well.

    here is a sound clip of them.

    Yup, those are the flats. I really like those strings, though I think I like the 760FL slightly better. I think the FLs cut through slightly better. However, I have a set of the 760FSs on a bass and I would not switch them until they wear out.

  11. I hope they wear out soon, I'm looking for a muddy tone, and mixed with a blues tone.

    I've been using the LaBella Deep Talkin' Roundwounds on my 4001 and I really like them a lot. I get about 2 to 3 months of steady use.

    You might try

    for a better price. I'm not connected with them in anyway, just use them for anything with strings... and I mean anything.
  15. What type of style do you play? If its a ric, proble rock or metal correct?

    Hey Derek, I would suggest not using any effects on the recording when you post soundclips to judge the strings from. You can't really hear what they sound like - unlike your wah filter...:)
  17. Ok next time I will record straight thru the amp and sound card.
