|The October 2005 issue of Bass Player Magazine featured an interview with Paul McCartney. As a part of this interview, McCartney's longtime technical director, Kevin Smith, offered some insights about Paul's Hofner Beatle Bass. Smith explained that Paul McCartney "favors" La Bella flat wound strings for his Beatle Bass, gauged .039, .056, .077, and .096.
I was assured by Hofner that these strings are safe to install on all Hofner German basses, along with the Icon and Contemporary basses as well.
La Bella Flat Wound Bass Strings for Hofner Beatle Basses - This is the exact style of LaBella flat wound strings as used on recent tours by Paul McCartney. This information about La Bella flat wound strings (referencing these specific gauges) was reported in the October 2005 Bass Player Magazine interview with Paul McCartney and his technical manager, Kevin Smith.
