Tapewounds - Keeping them clean

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by DownWithTheDown, Mar 23, 2013.

  1. I am about to put on a set of DAddario nylon tapewounds. I am a sweater and clean my flats at least once a week to get the gunk off.

    Does the nylon coating collect more or less gunk? Can I use rubbing alcohol on them or will it affect the coating?

  2. Anyone?

    Wipe down with a micro fiber cloth after use.

    A non abrasive cleaner if you need to.

    Since it is a plastic you have to be careful with that, you don't want it melting. I have used bass brites on nylon tapes without issues.
  4. Thanks! I couldn't find any info online about this.

    Checked out your online store. I now know who I'm buying my strings from in the future. Thanks again.
