Set of flatwound chrome long scale medium gauge bass strings. Only played once before deciding I needed a lighter gauge.
Gauges are: 50, 70, 85, 105.
The strings are cut to fit a Fender Jazz bass so will still be long enough for all types of bass.
Normally £42. Will post for a couple of pounds extra.
Hi, I have an Ibanez Talman short scale bass (originally bought for my young son). It plays really well and the strings in particular are very nice. I need to replace them and kind find any detail on them. Both Ibanez and the UK distributors have been unhelpful,
The strings have a chrome ball end and have black tapered full length windings, They are roundwound strings.
Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what they might be at all?
I've searched to high heaven, but can't find any reference at all to them.
Thanks in advance
As I tune my main 4 string Ibanez Mikro Bass, which has a just 28,6" scale length, in F# standard tuning, 2 half steps above regular 4 string E standard tuning, I use a set made out of single strings, the 2 middle strings actually being guitar strings threaded through the cut off ball ends of bass strings, after much experimentation settling for a gauge .090 - .072 - .054 - .040 set, calculated via the D'Addario String Tension Pro online string tension calculator the low F# string having a tension at about 25 lbs and the remaining strings just about 29 lbs each.
So I was thinking taking a shot at ordering a custom set of Newtone strings next time, and as far as I can tell from the description it seems like the Diamond line nickle plated steel hex core roundwounds would suit my preferences the best (I would very much like to keep approximately the same measurements as above).
Now I actually love the sound I get from the D'Addario XL strings I use, and didn't like the tone of the NYXL strings when I tried them, so my question is how does the Newtone Diamond series strings compare to D'Addario XL strings.
I mean both in terms of tone, longevity, tension, stiffness and feel in general?
I calculated that with VAT and import taxes a custom Newtone set like this will end up costing me just about the same as if I ordered single string D'Addario XL strings.
A longer lifetime would be a big sales point for me.
Selling my thomastik Enfield jazz FLATS.
SET for 5 strings, standard 34 scale.
They have been cut for fender jazz type headstock (4+1).
They would fit any other type of headstock except 5 in a row type headstocks, but types like 2+3 or 3+2 would work.
They were cut with a lot of extra length.
Haven't played for more than 2 hours, so they're not even broken-in.
Selling them because they just don't work on my 5 string bass, pickup combination.
I have a set on a P bass and they sound fantastic, just not for this specific bass.
Gauges are 043-056-070-100-136
I paid them 70£, was asking 50£, now only 40£! Shipping included within the UK.
