GHS 3060 Tapewound (4 string)
Everything I read said "don't use tape-wounds on an acoustic!" Glad I ignored all the sage advice, lol. I put a set of 3060's on my Tacoma (fretted) and when this set wears out, I'll put on another set.

With the 3060's, this bass sounds as close as I'm likely to get to an upright bass - which is exactly what I wanted.

My quest for the perfect bass string is over....

More tension PLZ
The strings sound great in any situation you would use flatwounds... They are basicly bright flats that have a tape wind around them... They sound good on my fretless... however they have lower tension so I had to loosen my truss rod and raise the g and d string at the bridge... Also be advised... they are fat at the tuning pegs so you may have to mod the string or your tuning pegs... be careful if you chose to mod the strings as they can unwrap...

GHS Black Tape Wound
Put these on a 1977 fretless P-Bass.
They feel great, and sound better. Smooth, fat, warm tone.
Nice tension, highly recommend.

GHS Tapewounds
I only use GHS strings on all my bass guitars. For my fretless these provide the punch that I need without getting too muddy. I play with fingers and pick and these are standing up very well to the heavy picking.

ghs tape wounds
I had to try these out on one of my P's and they sound great. They are tape wound rounds and they are really thumpy. Also they are black which visually is appealing to me but to each their own.

3060 Tapewound
I've used these on almost every bass I've owned since I first strung them up on my '67 Starfire in '68. Any product that one has used for over 40 years has to be a good one. For me it's foremost the tone. I get exactly what I want "All thump, no twang". Then they last for ever, rarely go out of tune, feel great and look good. Just wish they made them in a short scale version, so I could put them on every bass I currently own, and take off the Flatwounds.

Nice sound and feel
I love these strings. They sound and feel great on both electric and acoustic bass. Unfortunately I had a couple problems that are not the fault of the strings. First I put them on my electric but the shielding wasn't up to it. I was getting constant buzz. I'd also ordered a set of ground wounds so I took the tapewounds off my electric and put them on my acoustic. I guess the ball ends were a little bigger than on the bronze wounds that came on it an they cracked the bridge. it's still playable (sounds great in fact) but I will have to deal with it at some point (and with the shielding on my electric.)

Awesome strings
These are fantastic. These don't feel wobbly or floppy at all on my Schecter bass. Very tight feel, actually, which I like. Very punchy, thumpy, bright, and clear. Great strings for any style, highly recommended.

Product Reviews for GHS Electric Bass 4 String 34'' Scale, .050 - .105, Black Nylon Tapewound, 3060
As with the brite flats, a sumptuous sound.
Horrible feel, so flabby/wobbly, nothing for the left hand to grip/feel. Very easy to bend by mistake. Probably better at 35"/36" on a 5 string.
Feeding them through the bridge takes off a fine layer of nylon. Do they do heavies?

GHS 3060 Black Nylon Tapewound Bass Strings
Like the other reviewers i love these strings [along with the TI JF144's] and have found them to be quite versatile when it comes to what instruments i can use them with.
Yes they are more in keeping with the upright bass in terms of response and the lower tension is a plus with the old truly hollowbody basses [e.g. Framus, Hofner,and the 60's/70's Japanese clones].
But I also love that after looking at other Black Nylon Bass strings [LA Bella, Fender, RotoSoun] these have proven to be the most consistent and cost effective choice.

Played on a Fender acoustic/electric bass, these strings are smooth and give a nice upright sound when played through an amp.

GHS Bass Strings
These strings sound more like the Old upright bass with a deep fat bass sound without much sustain. They cost a little more than rugular strings but well worth it if you are looking for that type sound.

GHS Black Nylon Tapewounds 3060
I usually play on Thomastik-Infeld Flats but other then that these are the strings I use. I feel they sound best on my Sterling by MusicMan SB14 ("squier/epiphone" version of a stingray). They feel real smooth and have a nice pounce at the right EQ. OVERALL great string, mostly for a fatter and bigger sound.

GHS 3060
Other than TI JF344 flat wounds, these are my OTHER go to strings. I love these on my fretless. I can still get a good punch and pop and retain a smooth, mellow sound. I love these GHS 3060. Be careful when cutting the ends. They do tend to unwind if you keep taking them off and putting them back on.

Great for Electro-Acoustic Bass
Put a set on my Acoustic Bass Guitar. No more finger noise and they sound great! I plan on trying them on a few other basses.
