played Rotosound Trubass for a while but the gauge is weird. Anyone try the D'Addario tapewounds?
I have a set on my Modulus fretless and love them. They sound crazy warm and have the greatest mwah. But the best tapes I have ever used are LaBella white tapewounds. I have a set of those on my acoustic fretted and they play like butter. Nice even sound and great feel and tension
I use these on my Dean ABG. Great sound and feel, plus they're reasonably priced.
white tapes? interesting. but yeah I had the old 65-115 roto tapes on my fretless and they were way too big for the nut and bridge. I take it D'Addario tapewounds are a sound investment?
I had em before I switched up to the higher gauge rotos.
They're great strings! I tried them first because of the more "normal" gauges. They definitely gave me the confidence to "dive in" to the rotos.
To me, they feel a lot more "nylon-y" than the rotos, which I think might throw some people at first. I kinda just went with it & ended up really diggin em
I've had D'Addario Tapes on my Squier Standard Precision V since September. Really nifty strings. I'm enjoying them!
LaBella's Black Nylons used to be my preferred strings. Tried D'addario's, and now they took the place of the LaBella's. The main reason was that they are more flexible, without much change in tone.
D'Addario tapes are probably my favorite string. They sound great, feel incredible, and have a good lower tension.
I have them on 3 of my basses. Probably my favorite strings.
I have them on my Barker. I have 2 other basses with LaBellas.... Like 'em both.
