Tapewounds on a P-bass?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by JasonOnBass, Mar 6, 2003.

  1. Any experience with Tapewounds on a P-bass? I'm considering the switch for a better, denser "thump"...but maybe I'm way off here. Any thoughts? Thanks! :bassist:
  2. I use La Bella tapewounds on my P-Bass. I definetly prefer them over the roundwound nickles I was using before. They are thumpier, but I wouldn't say that's what characterizes them as a string. They offer a smoother, mellower sound, I guess. It eliminates the twang and clicking of a roundwound. It gives a lot more of a fundamental low tone, rather than an emphasis on the higher over tones. I recommend 'em.

    PS: The Carvin website has by far the best price on the La Bellas.
  3. Done! Thanks! :bassist:
