Labella White Nylon Tape Wound Upright Bass StringsLabella White Nylon Tape Wound
These strings build upon the success of the longtime favorite 7710 Black Tape Wound (now called the 7710N) which were developed with the assistance of Ron Carter and Attila Zoller. For the new White tape 7710T, LaBella worked with Ron Carter and a number of other members of their "Inner Circle of Artists" to come up with the design changes and proper construction for this new variant.

The newly developed strings are, like the original version, metal rope core strings, surrounded by a proprietary nylon wrap. The new 7710T strings are wound with a clear* proprietary nylon, which makes for an an even smoother-to-the-touch string with brighter tone and clarity than the original black-tape strings.

Since the black strings were originally designed to emulate gut, but to have a bit more of the feel and sustain characteristics of steel strings, this new version is a bit of a departure - the strings are brighter than the original 7710, so they should offer a whole new experience for the player, tone-wise.

As these strings are BRAND NEW (as of October 2013) we haven't had a chance to try them yet - but we'll post more when we've had some experience with them!

We 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. La Bella Strings is proud to introduce the new 7710T White Nylon Tape Wound, which takes the nylon tape construction to a whole new level. Unlike the 7710N Black Nylon Tape Wound Set, the 7710T strings are wound with a clear proprietary nylon to create an even smoother-to-the-touch string with brighter tone and clarity than the original 7710N strings.

* I emphasize that the outer windings are CLEAR because LaBella calls these the "white" version of the 7710 string, and they're not white. The milky/clear outer winding allows the colors of the inner windings to show through the outer wrap, and those windings' colors are actually a bit different from string to string; they vary from a copper-like E, A, and D string, to a more silvery G string.

I only tell you this to ensure that you don't feel like you got strings that were wrongly-packed, defective, or otherwise "weird" - the strings will play and sound perfectly normal, they just look a little "not white." See the close-up photo to the right (supplied by a customer) to get an idea of what to expect.

Eurosonic Upright Bass Strings
Eurosonic Upright Bass Strings

Eurosonics have a somewhat unique combination; a steel core, with silk damping layers and a flatwound, polymer outer winding. This gives them a gut-like vibe, with a thickness in both their feel and their sound. It also makes them easy on the hands. Very popular with players of bluegrass and rockabilly, with medium, light -- and even ultra-light (a slapper's dream) -- gauges for you to choose from.

Innovation SuperSilver - 140SS (Super Silver) Med Tension Strings
Innovation SuperSilver - 140SS (Super Silver) Med Tension Strings

Innovation Super Silver Strings are often used for Bluegrass or other "homegrown" styles, since they can be a synthetic alternative to true gut strings. They're the same design as the Silver Slap (and Golden Slap) strings, but with a more conventional "medium" tension. Warm, full tone with a nice "thump" -- but good pitch definition -- makes them particularly good in bluegrass and Americana styles, but they work well across a wide variety of genres. Can be bowed, but arco isn't their strongest suit.

Innovation Ultra Blacks - 140UB (UltraBlack) Med/High Tension Strings
Innovation Ultra Blacks - 140UB (UltraBlack) Med/High Tension Strings

Innovation UB (Ultra-Black) Double Bass Strings are named for their distinctive "Ultra Black" nylon flatwound outer winding; they work well for a player seeking a fuller, dark-sounding string with a stronger tension for heavier-handed playing. They work really well for traditional jazz and other styles; not so great for bowing, due to the flat, smooth nylon finish. The "Rockabilly" set from Innovation is basically this string in a "light" version.

LaBella 7710N BLACK Nylon Tape Wound Upright Bass Strings
LaBella 7710N BLACK Nylon Tape Wound Upright Bass Strings

This item is made in USA!These strings are a favorite of jazz bassist Ron Carter, who helped develop them, and are pretty popular for that reason (among others). They are metal rope core strings, surrounded by a black nylon wrap. Deep, defined tone without brashness works great for old school and modern jazz sounds, and also fits in well with most other traditional pizz genres. Rather lousy under the bow for most players, though you can make them work with the right rosin (and some other tricks.) Also available specifically sized for Ampeg Baby Basses (and clones).
