I acquired a set of Rotosound RS88 True Bass Black Nylon Tapewounds in their standard 115/100/75/65 gauge. My bass' s nut is cut for more conventional gauge of 105/80/65/45 or something like that. I tried the 115 string by laying it over the nut where no string was cut just to try it out. Sounds cool! Couple of choices with some questions: Buy some nut files and learn how to file the nut to accommodate these tapewounds. Will doing so mean I can't go back to conventional gauges later on? Or I could start by stringing with the 105 RS88 in the 4th slot and leave my TI Flats G string in place (or look for a RS88 single in a 50 to complete the set) albeit now everything is in thinner guage now. If I do this, will my E string sound to weak being a 105 rather than a 115? The 115 tuned to E was fairly floppy, I couldn't imagine a 105 tuned to E.
