Labella Black Nylon Tape Wound Upright Bass StringsLabella Black Nylon Tape Wound
These strings are a favorite of jazz bassist Ron Carter, and are pretty popular for that and other reasons. They are metal rope core strings, surrounded by a black nylon wrap, for a smooth feel. They were originally designed to emulate gut, but they have a bit more of the feel and sustain characteristics of steel strings. The bottom end is good, but I haven't played a set in a long while, so I can't personally provide anything more in-depth. Labella does not list gauges, but I have taken the time to measure all the strings using a digital caliper and present the following unofficial approximate measurements for your reference: G=.061, D=.077, A=.100, E=.134

NEW! We now carry the string set made specifically to fit the Ampeg Baby Bass, as well as sets for basses with E-string extensions and 5-Strings with a high C string.

Over 30 years ago, Ron Carter came to La Bella Strings with a vision: a jazz string that captured the rich tone of gut and sustain of steel, but without the headaches of gut and overly metallic sound of chrome. Months of R&D alongside Ron Carter and Attila Zoller resulted in the formation behind the 7710N Black Nylon Tape Wound Double Bass set. Wound with a black nylon tape outer-wrapping, this unique string design is ideal for jazz pizzicato, particularly solos. The result is a bright attack with a warm tone, creating a set truly unparalleled by any other double bass set on the market.



  • very smooth feel
  • Ron Carter's reported favorite
  • Labella's Deep Talkin' Bass
