GHS Tapewound Bass Strings combine a low tension string, the feel of a flatwound and woody, organic tones that remind you of a good double bass. We use a mix of roundwound and flatwound steel strings and wrap a black nylong tape around them and polish it smooth. The result is a string with a mellow sound but clear and definite articulation. Perfect for when you're looking for something different to stand out in the mix.
Why Should You Play Tapewounds?
- You're looking for a more woody, upright vibe on your acoustic-electric bass
- You're lookng for a low tension, effortless set of bass strings
- You want a mellow sound with clear articulation and sound
Please Note: Due to the construction process, GHS does not recommend using our tapewound strings on a thru-body bridge. Doing so can expose the final nylon cover to sharp edges, causing it to tear and unravel.
