    In that case I'll stick with the Galli 23" flatwound. I was hoping to eliminate the silk ends, don't like the various colors that are done.

    Just back from the luthier with new bridge, pickups and tapewounds installed with a full setup. This little thing is tons of fun!

    Very nice. I just picked up one of my Hadean 20.75" bass ukes to which my guy Eric's Guitar added a piezo fully adjustable all metal bridge and used the Kala/Galli short flatwounds, very happy with it.

    I also contacted Pyramid and they're making me 2 sets of 24" flatwound for my longer Hadean solid bodies with the same bridge, .045 .065 .085 .105. With monetary conversion and shipping from Germany, the cost is $118.79, $59.40 each. The Gold Tone/La Bella MBLS are $44.38, $15 more for custom is not bad.

    Man, that is a cool bass. While I don't play the bass. It is very inspiring. I think I'll find a shop here in Los Angeles that has one to try.

    And I found this review on YT. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQ15YPuOKD4
