    Currently La Bella extra long 'White' Nylon tape (organic, growly, smoothest ever, great balanced sound but can't ground to your fingers so background noisy)
    Thomastik-Infeld Jazz Flats (articulate, lots of mids, great in the mix) - going back to these long-lasting tried and true...

    New York Bass Works Deep Jazz fretted 6
    - reinforced maple/madagascar rosewood neck

    I am a determined follower of Jesus Christ and am a Mormon.
    I am absolutely nuts for NYBW / New York Bass Works basses. David Segal is the best. Period. There is one thing an NYBW 6-string can do that no other boutique I have owned or played in a store can: That is it walks from a four down through the low B naturally, sounds like it belongs, and is articulate. And you can walk up the C string and it stays like it belongs, warm and full - a bass string. So, you can use natural 4-string technique down the B and up C. It is also an extremely balanced and comfortable bass. I have fretted and fretted ones. They're all I play. There are highly respected boutique basses that simply are not in the same musical world of quality as an NYBW. (There must be others as good at what they do but I haven't found them.) David has a knack for finding superb tone woods and then for setup. People bring their even more expensive basses to him for setup. But his creation from start to finish is amazing. My fretted 6-string Deep Jazz model is ten years old and has not had any setup work done on it ever. And I can still set the action low without any buzz or other problems.
