I need a reality check and maybe a sound check from anyone who uses black tapewound strings. A friend's P-Bass has been "resting quietly" in his basement for 20+ years. A couple of decades ago he mounted LONDON SOUND brand tapewound strings, and then didn't play it much, so the strings are in fine condition. They're encased in black plastic and appear to be comparable to modern-day tapewounds. I'm surprised at how well they play and sound. Everything I've seen/heard online makes current-production tapewounds sound very, very dark and even muddy. But these FEEL GREAT -easy slides and just the right amount of tightness/flexability. They also SOUND GREAT producing an "organic" or maybe a "woodie" tone, if that makes sense. And this is on a standard P-bass from the early 1970s (no fancy electronics). QUESTION: Do modern black Tapewound strings provide that organic, woody tone, or are they strictly DARK Thumpers?
