The D'Addario ETB92 Tapewound Bass Strings deliver a vintage tone and smooth feel that's perfect for any genre. These long-lasting, well-balanced strings are expertly engineered by D'Addario to provide optimal tension and are gaged to fit properly on standard bass saddles and nuts. Designed to produce a deep, warm, percussive tone with a polished, ultra-smooth finish, the ETB92 strings wrap flattened black nylon around a high carbon steel core. Made for long scale basses, the ETB92 strings feature gauges from 50-105 for a higher tension, affording increased low-end response and output.

Flattened Black Nylon Winding

The ETB92 strings feature a unique flattened black nylon winding that creates an ultra-smooth, polished surface. This polished finish allows the strings to glide effortlessly along the fretboard, reducing squeaking and excess finger noise. The nylon also helps produce a deep, warm, upright-like tone that's perfect for jazz, R&B, reggae, and other genres that call for a vintage sound.

High Carbon Steel Core

At the heart of the ETB92 strings is a high carbon steel core that provides stability and longevity. The steel core works with the nylon winding to create a balanced tension that fits properly on most standard bass nuts and saddles. The steel also helps capture the natural acoustic resonance of the bass to produce a tone that's deep, rich and full of harmonic overtones.

Versatile Vintage Sound

The D'Addario ETB92 Tapewound Bass Strings are designed to provide a wide range of vintage tones. On a fretted bass, they create a sound reminiscent of an upright bass, with a deep "thump" and natural resonance. On a fretless bass, they provide a rich, mellow tone that glides smoothly between notes. For studio recording or live performance in any genre, the ETB92 strings are a versatile choice for any bassist looking to capture an authentic vintage sound.
