Can tapewounds survive on a fretted bass?
In my experience they can. I suppose eventually they might come apart, but I reckon it depends on the brand and I only have used D'Addario tapes.
Yes they work very well
Outstanding! I love then on my cheap fretless...
My favorite are LaBella white tapes
Greetings from the North,
I've had a fresh set of LaBella Black Tapes on my fretted Reverend Brad Houser 5 for the past 6 years with no problems and they're still sounding great.
Yes I have had a set on one of my basses for a few years. It doesn't see a lot of use but it does get some. There has been no sign of any problems.
100% fine with frets, but i've had the tape come apart on a string-thru at the bridge where the strings bend round. Not the fault of the bass or the strings, I think it happened because that part was rubbing against the gig-bag i use, so just something to be aware of.
ps i have XL tapes on 3 basses which i play regularly and they're all fine
Do they make a 145 B tape?
Not that I know of... @SLaPiNFuNK
