  1. After trying a range of bass strings I have settled on D'Addario ETB92 tapewounds as my preferred choice on both my Jazz and Precision basses. I love 'em. They can can be mellow, but they also have some bite. They are easy on the fingers and on the frets (and fretboard if fretless). And they last a long, long time. So far, so good. 

    This weekend I put some new tapewounds on my Precision. The A, D and G strings were as I expected - smooth and just like the ones on my Jazz. However, the E string was different - it was rougher (I can feel the grooves) with some of the metal shining through. This is unlike the E string on my Jazz. What can I do?

       I use D’addario tapes, that’s a faulty string, they should send you a replacement 🙂

      Thanks for the advice. Appreciated.

      These are about 5 years old on my jazz,  and are really well played, silky smooth and such a nice warm tone, I love them 🙂

      Yep. That's why they are so cool! Better pics on my jazz.
