I recently broke the E string on my fretless (it was a d'addario nylon tapewound one), so have had to use roundwounds for a week or so. I've noticed that the board wear has doubled in the past week so I am anxious to get some smooth strings on. The only problem is, finding an E string tapewound is easier said than done. If I were to go onto bassstringsonline.com, it would cost me more than the string to ship it over here. I don't want to spend £30-£40 on a whole new set, and only want the E string. Any ideas, Talkbass? Edit: I mean single strings, not burned ones, my bad.
