    Been waiting on my stocking orders :-/ The website is not taking La Bella orders for out of stock items as I have no definite ETA.

    Medium scale flats
     
  8. What I meant was which specific set as in the gauges.

    Are you absolutely stuck on the La Bella brand?

    I actually just bought some DR LEGENDS on eBay. Ill have to see how those are
    I've never used DR Flats
     
  10. I didn't even know DR Legends actually came in medium scale.
     
  11. rondomusic.com may have a few. look in the accessories page.

  12. Are you sure you didn't get a wrong set thinking "medium" meant "medium scale" when it simply means "medium-gauge" (45-105)?

    They're SFL 45"s. Medium / Short scale flats. The store said They will fit a Starfire II.
     
  14. You should be okay then. Because DR's "short scale" has a winding length (ball end to silk) of 34", which is actually considered "medium scale" by most other manufacturers, including La Bella.

    Yeah that's what the seller said. He actually called the short/medium scale
     
  16. The same goes to DR's "long scale", which has a winding length of 38", which is most manufacturers' "extra-long scale".

    They must do this just to confuse us. ;)

    Your best bet is Imperial Guitar & Soundworks. They're right down the street from LaBella in NY, and they carry lots of their stuff. Short lead times, too!

    You can get them right here on Talkbass. I just received my "white tape wound flats" today along with a nice TalkBass sticker and a cleaning cloth added at no charge. And if you are a supporting member, you get 15% off in the store. Here's the link to some Labella Medium flats here on TalkBass for you:

    TalkBass.com > Search

    Oh yeah, that included free shipping (UPS ground) and no tax in WA.

    ***EDIT***
    I presumed you were looking for Medium gauge set of strings, not the Medium gauge SHORT SCALE which you listed farther down. The ones in the link are the standard 34" scale necks...sorry about that!
