: : hello
: : i recently bought an acoustic bass guitar and the sound is way too bright for my tastes. has anyone ever tried coated strings on an acoustic bass guitar?
: : does anyone have recommendations about which coated bass strings are best?
: : i'd appreciate any input that is in any way relevant
: : thanks
: My Carvin AC50F came with LaBella Nylon wrap stings. No problem since it uses a piezo pickup. No problem unless you have a bass that uses traditional magnetic pickups. It has a nice sweet, very liquid sound; very close to an upright.
I agree. I tried the LaBella Nylon tape-wound strings on my Epiphone El-Capitan acoustic and they sound very good. Could be what you are looking for.
