Why flat wound stainless steel? This combination of a stainless steel and flat windings lets the brightness of the stainless steel tone counteract the weaker magnetic characteristics that lead to dullness in the tone of some flat wound strings. Stainless steel has a naturally bright sound when used for electric bass or guitar strings; but the combination of stainless with flat windings compensates for the typical dullness or muddy tones that can come from flat wound strings. La Bella's string making artisans go farther to grind, buff, and polish these strings, to make them silky smooth. The result is a truly smooth and consistent bass string, that plays easily and sounds great. La Bella 760 series of stainless steel flat wound strings achieve the balance that bassists are looking for.
