    Has anyone ever tried putting Thomastic Infeld Acoustic Nylon Cores on a jazz or any electric bass?

    How did it work out?

    I’m interested in trying out to get a more round and warm tone. Also I need some really low tension strings due to an injury.

    My only concern is that because there is no metal core the output might be really low but I don’t know.

    Any advice would be great.

    If it has a Piezo bridge / pickup sure that is fine. Otherwise they won't work.

    Your best bet is Thomastik Jazz Rounds or other round core strings in a very light gauge... 30-90 for example.

    You can also do flats...

    I bought some Labella Gold White tapewounds last week that might be just what you are looking for. They are extremely flexible and are very full and warm sounding and not nearly as thumpy as flat wounds, this is a good thing to me.
