LaBella to long?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Fetch Da bass, Jun 20, 2002.

  1. I just bought some LaBella Black Nylon tape Wound Strings from Carvin. I am going to install them on my fretless Fender Jazz. I didn't put them on yet but it looks like the E-string is going to be way to long. On the package it says "Wind only the silk end of the string into the machine head post. If you wind the metal wound portion of the string into the machine head post, the string will almost certainly break. "On the E- string it will go way past the silk portion of the string and onto the tape wound part of the string. I am thinking of taking them back.. Carvin is only 20 minutes from my house. If these string don't fit fretless Fender Jazz, then what kind of good black tape wounds will properly fit.? Thanks

    The Fender sets.

    I have those and I like them. It is the only set ive tried however, so I might not be a good reference point.
