These should be interesting

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by hstiles, Sep 12, 2003.

  1. I managed to get an English string maker to make me a set of Nickel Roundwounds as follows:

    Taperwound throughout and a long enough taper to facilitate through body string on my Fender Jazz

    45, 65, 85, 110, 140

    They should sound thunderous!

    If anyone's interested, I'll let you know how I get on and give you the company name. They weren;t expensive either - less than the price of most brand handmade strings.

    Rotosound??? Are they taperwound or exposed core?
  3. They're Newtone strings and they're taperwound - around .25 over the bridge saddles then up to full guage.

    Wow...this sounds interesting. It would seem to me that a custom set like this would cost a fortune for average bass playin' folk like myself! BTW, are these Newtone strings roundcore also? I know that his acoustic guitar strings are.
