Gear Watch: D’Addario Nylon Tapewound Bass Strings

D’Addario Nylon Tapewound Bass StringsD’Addario has added to their line of bass string products with their new Nylon Tapewound Bass Strings. The strings are wound using a flattened black nylon which is polished to an ultra-smooth finish.

Tapewounds can be used on fretted and fretless basses and are designed to produce a vintage tone ranging from “the thump of an upright bass to the focused depth of traditional flatwound strings.”

The strings are engineered to provide optimal tension and are gauged to fit properly on standard bass saddles and nuts.

Nylon Tapewound Bass Strings have a MSRP of $62.99. For more information, visit D’Addario’s website.
