  2. They are like acoustic guitar strings they have brass/copper or whatever. Don't use electric strings on an acoustic the tolerences are different.
     
  3. thank you tim; the bass im going to get is acustic and fretless; its important for me to have strings with a strong sound even if im not using an amp; which would those be?

    The Labella wrapped are great on acoustic-electrics. I haven't tried them, though, unamplified.
