In Reply to: Hofner Bass Strings posted by Johnny Brown on January 22, 2000 at 11:50:11:
: I recently purchased a Hofner Beatle Bass and found that my local music store does not carry strings for it. I was wondering what the best kind of strings to get and where to get them. I would prefer a good flat-wound string. I have e-mailed Boosey & Hawakes but they just do not reply.....HELP
The best strings for a Hofner are the factory strings, which are made by Pyramid from Germany. They are sold as either of the Hofner or Pyramid Gold brands, but they are the same strings. The best place to get them, IMO, is from Frank Trevino in Hawaii. His email address is HOFVOX@aol.com. I can't remember right off what the sets go for, but his price will be the best one you find, plus he is one of the classiest gentlemen you'll ever deal with. I've bought from him several times, and can't thank him enough.
