|At the Summer NAMM show, Nashville, TN Booth #1201, D’Addario showcases the newest additions to its string product line, the Nylon Tapewound Bass Strings, XL Light Top/Heavy Bottom multi-packs, XL Light Top/Heavy Bottom 8-string set, and EXP Acoustic 80/20 Bronze Light Top/Medium Bottom Bluegrass Set.
D’Addario Nylon Tapewound Bass Strings are designed to produce a deep, warm tone while providing a smooth, comfortable feel. The strings are wound using a flattened black nylon which is polished to a smooth finish. The strings are 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.
D’Addario also adds ETB92S Nylon Tapewound Short Scale Bass set and the ETB92-5 Nylon Tapewound Long Scale 5-string set.
XL Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings are world-renowned as “The Player’s Choice”. D’Addario launches convenient 3-packs and 10-packs for favorite models. EXL140 Electric Guitar XL Light Top/Heavy Bottom (gauges .010 - .052) will now be available as both a 3-pack and a 10-pack. D’Addario’s EXL125 XL Super Light Bottom/Regular Top (gauges .009 - .046) will now be available in a handy 10-pack.
