My new Kramer XL 24 and Nylon Strings
I just picked this up today. There's some fret wear (especially the E zero fret) and I was wondering if nylon tapewound strings would help prevent further fret wear. I know they're thuddy but the bass is tinny....
I was also thinking of stringing it BEAD. Although maybe the scale length is too short...
The staticy pots need a good cleaning too.
Any input on the strings?

stunning bass, love the tuning fork headstocks. Curious to how it would sound BEAD. B may be a bit dull, but then again, the aluminum neck may counteract that. If you do, let me know! interested in how it sounds :) Ill bet those pickups sound sweet :) as far as the zero fret wear, i would just use the strings that you like. a zero fret would cost you next to nothing to get replaced. Wouldn't need leveling, and really requires little work. I replaced the zero fret on my vacarro due to the same issue, took about 10 minutes. if your not comfortable doing it yourself, It would cost around $15 to get it replaced if it gets bad enough.

Is that a short scale btw?

thanks for the feedback too reptileroundabo. I'm wondering if nylons would work. And the differences between D'addario, Labella, rotosound etc.
