Are there any in existance?
Sure. http://www.juststrings.com/fnd-7120.htmlI've used those a bunch of times and they sound pretty good. Punchy, clear and fun to play. You can bend them and stuff. I have them now on my fretless Dano.
La Bella makes some great Nylon tapewounds, too. I have a set on my fretless and I love 'em.
If you want to buy a set, be sure to get them from Carvin's website. For some reason Carvin sells the La Bella tapewounds for at least $20 less than the other online dealers I've seen that sell them.
They also sell a 5-string version, if that's what you're looking for.
Stupid question- do these work w/magnetic pickups? Also, do you know if they make low B & high C strings?
I have Thomastik-Infeld Acousticore strings on my Hanewinckel 6-string semi-hollow piezo midi bass.
I have a couple of audio clips here:
These strings will not work with magnetics. That's why there are no magnetics on this bass. It was designed to use these strings.
The Fenders are tapewound metal strings. I find them rather plasticy feeling. I prefer the Labella tapewounds, which feel more silky and sound great.
Dave: great bass solos!
