OVERVIEW

Deep, warm tone with a smooth feel.

D'Addario ETB92-5 Medium Black Nylon Tapewound 5-String Bass Strings are designed to produce a deep, warm tone while providing a smooth, comfortable feel. D’Addario Tapewound Bass strings are wound using a flattened black nylon which is polished to an ultra-smooth finish.

These long-lasting, well-balanced strings are expertly engineered to provide optimal tension and are gauged to fit properly on standard bass saddles and nuts. Tapewounds may be used on fretted or fretless basses and are designed to deliver a vintage tone ranging from the “thump” of an upright bass to the focused depth of traditional flatwound strings.

Medium gauge (.050"-.135")

      Comments about D'Addario ETB92-5 Medium Black Nylon Tapewound 5-String Bass Strings:

      These are the absolute perfect strings for the right situation. Reading the other reviews, I think some people didn't know what they were getting, which happens sometimes when you branch out into new things. I put these on my Godin A5 (electric semi-hollow bass) and was blown away by the sound. The guys I gig with have all commented on the great presence, thump, mix-cutting growl I can get with these strings. If I roll back the highs, I can almost get an upright. But let's be clear - only an upright sounds like exactly an upright. These get a great tone that have caused me to leave my other basses at home or off-stage on gigs. These are part of my primary setup. The trick for me to get a killer sound with these is to turn the volume down a little on the bass and dig in with your right hand. I do tons of country (of course in Nashville) jazz, and classic rock/Americana. These strings probably aren't for head bangers, and the ax you put them on probably matters. With my active pickup/preamp I've found the right sound in every situation so far.

          Very smooth surface is easy on the fingers. Stays in tune. Last longer than other strings I've tried. MF pricing is lower than other distributors.

          They"re quality strings they just didn"t work for my needs.
          Not what i expected. i put them on my Yamaha rbx5a2. Too hollow. i had nylons before and I liked them these weren't the same.

          ETB92-5 Nylon Bass Strings, for long neck bass check the pounds the strings do & avoid warp bass

          By mario preciado

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about D'Addario ETB92-5 Medium Black Nylon Tapewound 5-String Bass Strings:

          This strings tune up OK, and the pounds they exart on the neck according to the string pkg. is the best for avoiding a warpped neck.
          I have to drilled the B string hole to let the string in the bracket, but no biggy for me...
          I like the sound off the strings also.
          The E string seems to be sitting a little high for the diameter of the nylon string.
          and then maybe the B string also, but the smoothness of the strings and the low pounds on the neck is worth it to me.

          ETB92-5 Nylon Bass Strings, for long neck bass check the pounds the strings do & avoid warp bass

          Comments about D'Addario ETB92-5 Medium Black Nylon Tapewound 5-String Bass Strings:

          The thing, to look for on bass strings is the: "POUNDS" the strings put on the neck of the bass, that is if you don't want to buy a new one every year or work with a bow n arrow one.
          Make sure you get the long neck strings, and avoid warpped necks.
          FOR SURE, NYLONS DO TAKE IT EASY ON THE POUNDS OF STRESS ON THE NECK.
          What good is what you like in tone about the strings, if the bass turns into a bow n arrow condition.
          I like the strings floating just off the frets, for fast action, right?
          I like them. At first I was worried that the large diameter, of the strings would not sit into their grooves but the large diameter of the strings just kept from reaching the neck grooves.
          and they tuned just fine. Looks like the E string is sitting a little higher because of not fitting the groove it's resting a little high.
          Also, the B string is too, large to go through the same hole, the wire B came out from, so it will just need to be drilled slightly bigger to accommodate the larger diameter of the Nylon, no biggy for me...
          It is quite a relief, not to have finger burn, from flying across the strings, thanks A'ddroid Strings.
          The POUNDS these strings, produce on the neck is the best, I've seen, but I haven't compared with other nylons, but compared to steel, its 1/3 as much,or less good for straight fret-board...
          I like mellow...
          Excellent Price, and quality.
