Overview

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")

Great Set of Bass strings

By john

from wewa, Florida

Comments about D'Addario ETB92 Black Nylon Tapewound Short Scale Bass Strings:

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.....

    Comments about D'Addario ETB92 Black Nylon Tapewound Short Scale Bass Strings:

    I bought a set of these for my Epiphone SG bass. The bass came with a set of roundwounds, but I wanted a warmer, mellow sound (the roundwounds had too much "screech" to them. This set is fantastic. I have three other basses (Hofner short scale, a 60's Gibson EB-0 and a P-bass) and I replaced all of the old strings with these, and have not regretted my decision.

      Comments about D'Addario ETB92 Black Nylon Tapewound Short Scale Bass Strings:

      these have a sound that old school bass lovers will be addicted to.
      My best advice is to put these on a bass and standard string on your second and enjoy.
      Steel is brighter, but the nylon give a smooth mellow clear tone that just can not be found on the steel or nickel.
      Excellent sound, But I have other basses with other strings to produce different tones,
      These were exactly what I hoped they would be. clear, mellow, beautiful, deep, bass tones.
