Here's what La Bella say about these strings;
Since the 50s and 60s, La Bella’s DEEP TALKIN’ BASS Stainless Steel Flat Wounds have been the choice of professional bass players and continue to be the standard for the best-sounding Flat Wounds on the market.
Stainless Steel Flat Wound; hand-polished for an incredibly smooth finish
5-String Set; Medium Tension
String Gauges: .049, .069, .089, .109, .128T
Standard Long Scale Set
Made in the USA with American Wire
Packaged using MAP Technology (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) to prevent tarnishing and ensure freshness
All standard bass sets are LONG scale length.
The 1st (G), 2nd (D) & 3rd (A) strings are 38” from ball-end to silk/taper.
The 4th (E) & 5th (B) string are 36 Â¾” from ball-end to silk/taper.
**PLEASE NOTE** Only the silk portion of the string should wrap around the tuning post or else the string will break.
This particular set is NOT suitable for basses with bridges that require strings to pass through the body of the instrument.
We insist that players use the measurement of ball-end (anchor) to top nut of their current set of strings. This measurement is more accurate than scale length as it takes into account through-body stringing, and more complex or alternative bridges. In many cases the set of strings required will be longer than the bass’s stated scale length! Use these references:
If ball-end-to-nut length is:
Up to 32” choose Short Scale
32”-34” choose Medium Scale
34”-36” choose Long Scale
36”-38” choose Extra/Super Long Scale
If you have a bass where you cannot see the ball-end i.e. a thru-body bass, you will have to measure your string once it has been removed. Before removing the string be sure to make a mark on the string with a permanent marker just behind the nut so you know where to measure to. Then once you’ve taken it off the bass, you can measure from the ball-end to the mark you made on the string.
