I know a lot of you use tapewounds, especially on fretless, but I gotta say, I LOVE GHS tapes! I finally got the transducer/buffer/preamp straightened out on my Carvin AC-50, but it didn't sound great, ya know? The sound was just kinda O.K., but the difference of sound level across the strings was enough that I couldn't play on the G-string loud enough to balance. I took the Labellas off, polished the fingerboard with 0000 steel wool, oiled and buffed 'til it shines! Put on my GHS spare set, and WOW! I finally like this bass! The sound is very uniform across the strings, the articulation is much better, and there is more attack and less of the microphonics so prevalent with piezo pickups. Maybe the Labellas were just old; they looked new; hard to say with tapes... I don't want to sound like a commercial, but the price on the GHS tapes is very good, too!
