OVERVIEW

Deep, warm tone with a smooth feel.

Designed to produce a deep, warm tone with smooth 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"-.105")

Too short scale

By Basser Angels of Our Nature

from Washington, DC

About Me Experienced

Comments about D'Addario ETB92 Black Nylon Tapewound Short Scale Bass Strings:

D'Addario advertises these strings as fitting bases up to 32" scale: that is not true. The strings' effective length is 31" (that is, the length of playable string). When I called MF to ask if I could return them, they referred me to D'Addario. Still waiting to see what D'Addario does.

    Comments about D'Addario ETB92 Black Nylon Tapewound Short Scale Bass Strings:

    Just acquired a Hofner B-bass. Put on it for the low, acoustic sound. Already had some on a Jazz bass and loved them. The viola hollow body Hofner is made just right with these strings. Easy playing and great sound.

          Comments about D'Addario ETB92 Black Nylon Tapewound Short Scale Bass Strings:

          I've played bass as a weekend warrior for almost 30 years. I found out about tapewound strings that came on an a/e long scale bass that I bought elsewhere around 15 years ago. Two years ago, I bought an Epiphone violin beatle bass here at MF. I also added these strings to the order because they were the only short scale tapewounds I could find. When I received them, it was off with the standard stings (nickel roundwounds if I recall correctly) and on with the D'Addario ETB tapewounds. Just like that the short scale violin bass got all of the oomph of a double bass. You can play with your tone and pickup selections and get a really good beatle sound (like nickel flatwounds) all the way to a warm bell sound (think funk sound). I now also use the long scale version of these on all my solid bodies and that original a/e bass.

          Buy 'em you won't be sorry!

              I was disappointed in this set of tapes. The tone was on the muddy side...feel was good, but the silk was way too long. So long that on all four strings, it went over the nut and near the first fret.

                Comments about D'Addario ETB92 Black Nylon Tapewound Short Scale Bass Strings:

                Installed a set of these on a Gibson SG bass based on a recommendation. I've tried several different strings on the SG and these are my favorite. Great feel. super even sound and output (a frequent issue with the SG/EB series). They really complement the character of the bass and are a perfect fit. Silk on strings just make it on the nut and bridge.

                Now I'm considering a long scale set for my fretless.
