Tapewounds for 26.5inch

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm looking for tapewounds for my short, short scale fretless bass (26.5 ACG bass). Labella don't make strings that short, does anyone have any suggestions how I can string 30" strings or where I could get shorter ones?

Email Mark at Bass Direct. He got me some for my 33” W&T.

Newtone stings? They reckon to to almost anything.

Thanks. Tried them but no, I have asked for some flatwounds when they start making them.

Nope, they will have to be a bit shorter than that, but I will email and see if they can get custom lengths. Thanks.

How'd you get on?

I've recently taken delivery of a 6 string ACG Micro Bass and I'm keen to know what other options might work string wise...

Great bass!

No luck so far. Status, D'Addario and Labella don't do that length.

Drats.

Who else is there? Picato? Are they even a thing now? Obviously Newtone can do the right length but they only do Roundwounds, right? I know Neil was interested in trying Flats but I don't know if he's anywhere near yet...
