I know an electric solid body bass won't sound 100% like a DB, but for numerous reasons I can't have a DB or even an EUB right now, so this will have to do. I bought a set of GHS Black Nylon Tapewounds (.050 - .105) and had them on another fretless, but right now they are back in their packaging. I know the GHS ones are the thinnest and usually don't require any adjustments to the nut, but I don't care if I have to make adjustments for this bass because I'll likely have the same set of strings on it until I'm done with it, and I may be replacing the nut anyway. I *think* that the GHS's are actually groundwounds under the nylon, where as other brands are roundwounds, hence why the others are thicker. I'm not sure if this is true, kind of a rumor that I heard. I know that Labella's are pretty much the standard and are what come stock on Rob Allen's, which can sound like a DB, but it's not a solid body bass either. Has anyone tried numerous brands of tapewounds on the same bass and have any preference as to which one sounds the most like a DB? I don't have an issue with the GHS's and I like how they sound, but am curious if there may be something better.
