Got these from an older guy. If it helps, he said it was on a vintage Hohner. Any ideas?
but don't know whose-
I like the way the overwraps near the barrels don't bunch up in a thick wad like some I've seen, that won't fit thru some bridges.
That doesn't look like tapes aka wound flat nylon. That looks like heat shrink tubing over the whole string lol.
Ha, yeah, thought I saw some some wrap lines in the coils, but not on closer look, and none at the ball ends.
Sorta like Plasti-Dip w/o getting it in the barrels.
Would be something if you could treat nylon tapes with heat like heat-shrink tubing and the wraps would blend together,but that won't happen with nylon.
They sure do look like someone slid a plastic tube over them and shrank it, tho.
Yea I've never seen anything like them before. Haven't tried tapes before, but don't think they are. They do have a plasticity feel to them. I might just have to try them out for myself.
I think this is how they were made back on the day. I vaguely remember a thread wth tapes like these and they were old rotosound or fenders.
^^^ Agreed! ^^^ They aren't tapes. They're coats.
Yes those look like tapewound.
What do they look like on the tuner end?
