OVERVIEW

Bass strings with a vintage tone and a smooth feel.

Designed to produce a deep, warm tone with smooth feel, D'Addario Tapewound Bass strings are wound using a flattened black nylon, which is polished to an ultra-smooth finish. These long-lasting, well-balanced strings are expertly engineered to provide optimal tension and are gauged to fit properly on standard bass saddles and nuts. Tapewounds may be used on fretted or fretless basses and are designed to deliver a vintage tone ranging from the "thump" of an upright bass to the focused depth of traditional flatwound strings.

    Comments about D'Addario ETB92 Nylon Tapewound Medium Gauge Bass Strings:

    Excellent strings, great tone and virtually noise free. I was seeking to emulate the sound of an upright acoustic bass on my fretless Ibanez Portamento electric. I've been using D'Addario XL Chrome flatwounds, but wanted to create a tone even more acoustic like. The piezo pickup on the Portamento bass is superb and these tape-wound strings take its acoustic-like qualities another step closer. Be sure to measure your scale length (end-pin to nut), but once you've got the correct length strings, you'll love the more mellow and subtle tones that come from your instrument (most standard basses use ETB92). Great strings, excellent tone, long life, good price -- another top quality string from D'Addario.
