    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    LA BELLA STRINGS INTRODUCES 760T WHITE NYLON TAPE WOUND BASS SET;
    EXPANDS NYLON TAPE WOUND BASS STRING OFFERING WITH LIGHT GAUGE SET.

    January 15, 2012

    Newburgh, NY – As the innovators of the Black Nylon Tape Wound bass set, La Bella introduces the 760T White Nylon Tape Wound set. Unlike the classic 760N set, the 760T White Nylon Tape Wound set is made with a transparent nylon wrapped over stainless steel underlays. The result is a brighter sound and even smoother finish, allowing players to effortlessly glide from note to note. The 760T set is extremely versatile and can be used for electric, fretless and acoustic basses.

    Additionally, La Bella is proud to expand its extremely popular Nylon Tape Wound bass series to include a Light gauge offering: .050 .065 .085 .105. Both the Black Nylon Tape Wound and White Nylon Tape Wound will be available in the new light gauge:



    750T White Nylon Tape Wound
    Light, 4-String, .050 .065 .085 .105

    750N Black Nylon Tape Wound
    Light, 4-String, .050 .065 .085 .105

    760T White Nylon Tape Wound
    Standard, 4-String .060 .070 .094 .115

    All Standard Black & White Nylon Tape Wound bass sets are available in 5-String (.060 .070 .094 .115 .135) & 6-String (.043 .060 .070 .094 .115 .135) models.

    Additionally, all Light Black & White Nylon Tape Wound bass sets are available in 5-String (.050 .065 .085 .105 .135) & 6-String (.043 .050 .065 .085 .105 .135) models.

    As with all La Bella bass sets, all black and white nylon tape wound sets are Standard Long Scale, and available in Short, Medium and Extra Long scales.

    To purchase a set, please contact a La Bella dealer!

    Jason, are they truly white or just appear white since we actually see the SS string, if you know what I mean?

    Fan-frickin'-tastic! I love tapes, just not the look of black strings.

    I have not played them yet but they say in the press-release above "The result is a brighter sound and even smoother finish."

    It's about time they made a tapewound set in gauges that make sense.

    It is tough to make a .105 E string. It is only recently through different materials and core to wrap ratio's that string makers are able to make an inner string that is able to support an E without being overly floppy.
