    i put a set of la bella nickel rounds (short scale, 40 - 95 custom lights) on my hofner shorty in april.

    i didn't care for them at first, but that wasn't surprising as i dislike new string sound. after some time has passed, the twang is gone and they actually sound quite good - not as bassy as i like, but otherwise smooth, very smooth, balanced, clear and articulate. they're low tension and smooth to the touch which i quite like.

    something else i like is that without creating your own set, these la bellas come in several custom light sets as well as light and medium and you can choose short, medium, long or extra long scale for any of the gauges.

    despite the lack of boom, i like 'em enough i'll probably keep them on at least one bass.
