D'Addario Tapewounds on Breedlove Fretless?
As I haven't yet seen this specific query answered, I'm asking if anyone else with a Breedlove Atlas Solo BJ350/CM4 Fretless acoustic bass guitar has tried a set of D'Addario ETB92 Nylon Tapewound strings on your bass? If so, any problems at the bridge or nut?
I like the roundwounds it comes with, but someday I'd like to try the Tapewounds; however, while the provided rounds are Light-guage (45-100), the Tapewounds are Medium (50-105).
So I'm wondering if anyone out there has already tried this?
Thanx for any advice!
Tapewounds sound awesome on an acoustic. I have an Ibanez AEB5E which has bridge pins; I took it to a pro to install the D'Addario Tapewounds.
OK, it's that "... took it to a pro" stuff that prompted me to post my question. I get the impression that no-one has tried the particular combination I mentioned? (Yes, I did a search on it first, old-timers!)
I expect that I'll forgo being the guinea pig here, since I can't afford trying maybe-not-gonna-work stuff. Or paying for expert help.
Thank you nonetheless for the reply!
I put Fender tapewounds (9120) on a Michael Kelly fretless Dragonfly. And I did it all by myself.
Was a little tricky getting that .110 in with the bridge pin, but it fits. Sounds great, too. Not as loud as acoustic strings, but worth it. (Also sounds great amplified.)
