    Hi,

    I did a search, but cannot find anything on the Fender nylon tapewounds strings.

    Any have hands on experiences with this strings, especially with P-style fretless?

    Been using D'Addario flat and groundwound for ages on my other basses. So. Want to try something different.

    Slapping is unimportant at all. I don't slap.
    I use my keyboards for that. But an expressive sound is the major thing here.

    Thanks.
     
  2. I just put a set of Fender nylons on my jazz bass (fretted. I love Thomastik jazz flats and rounds, but didn't want to go to the trouble to find the long gauge jazz rounds and pay the cost this time around, so I got this Fender set.

    I am quite impressed with the Fender nylon. Very tight tension, a sound that is not bright (which I like). They seem to bring out the mid range which is what I like. PLUS, I have never heard the harmonics so clearly before. For a inexpensive string, I am really impressed. I will reserve judgement on how long they last.

    I used to use Boomers when I didn't have the money or want to pay the TI prices. Now I have found another string I like.

    Actually. I got myself a set of Fender Nylon shortly after I post. I absolutely love it.

    Punchy without the brightness. You're correct. They are tight, and the harmonics are just clean, clean and beautiful.

    Great strings for little money.
