Stainless Steel Roundwound:
Slappers use a steel core and a steel layer underneath the nickel wrap. This gives greater strength with the sound and feel of nickel, making them excellent for slap.
Deep Talkin Bass are LaBellas flatwound strings and use the number code 0760. The Letter(s) after refer to guage. The 0760M Bass set was used by the legendary James Jamerson on virtually every Motown hit record in the 1960s.
