My poor P bass bears the scuffs and scrapes below the bridge of an owner condemned with string indecision. Rounds, flats, tapes...I’ve tried at least 25-30 different sets in the past three years. For rounds, DR Sunbeams and GHS Balanced Nickels are the standouts, but something about the creamy, mellow joy of La Bella DTB flats just feels like home to me. And they lend themselves to the music I play (blues, R&B, roots, praise music for church). I’ve been through 2 sets of FL’s, one set of FS, and now my third set of the big boys, 760M (or Jamersons...or 1954’s...or whatever they’re called). This last set of the bigguns’ doesn’t seem so onerous to navigate, perhaps because my hands are stronger with the many hours of exercise, and the tone...omg. The thump/punch is second to none. The tension is part of the magic, and my P’s neck seems up to the task. But they are unavoidably gargantuan, and as a one-bass owner who practices a lot, I’m curious about the toll they may take on my 40+ year old fingers. And though they do what they do really well, they don’t do much else. So I thought: why not a poll? I suspect FL’s will lead the pack, but the FM set intrigues me...maybe just a little less tension would be perfect. I don’t recall why I moved away from the FS set. The FX seems like it would be too light, but I’ll leave it open for consideration. As for the low tension versions, in context, I’ve tried TI’s Jazz flats thrice and decided I just can’t overcome the over-pliability or lack of low end. I’ve also tried D’Addario, Dunlop, Ernie Ball, Fender, GHS, and Rotosound flats. La Bella is where I’m at. Your explanatory thoughts and contributions in regards to experience with La Bella’s DTB flats are appreciated. I know it’s a well-worn subject, but I haven’t seen a thread consider all 5 variations together.
