If you’ve ever looked into the different types of bass strings available to you, you might have come across tapewound bass strings. Maybe you knew what they were, but for those of us that dont, here’s some information.

A tapewound string, at its core, is the same as a regular wound bass string. The difference is that they have a thin layer of “tape” (nylon material) wrapped around them string. This usually produces a warmer, smoother, rounder, and softer tone on the bass guitar.
