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.
Medium gauge (.050"-.105")

I have an Ibanez Mikro 5 String Bass and I was not prepared to pay $60 bucks for a set of strings, so I purchased a tape wound 4 string set ( D'addario ) and used the existing 5th string as is.. The Bass sounds great with the new Tape wound strings and the original 5th strings adds a great tone to the low end. The set I purchased is short scale for up to a 32 inch scale Bass... My Bass is a 28.5 inch scale and they fit perfect. I spent half the money and got the sound I wanted. Give it a try.....
