BLACK NYLON TAPE WOUND

7710N BLACK NYLON TAPE WOUND

 

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.

WHITE NYLON TAPE WOUND

With the new 7710T White Nylon Tape Wound Double Bass set, La Bella Strings takes a 30-year old tradition of nylon tape strings to a whole new level. The 7710T White Nylon Tape Wound Double Bass set is still ideal for jazz, capturing the rich tone of gut and sustain of steel, but without the headaches of gut and overly metallic sound of chrome. Unlike the 7710N Black Nylon Tape Wounds, the 7710T strings are wound with proprietary clear nylon tape formula, to create an even smoother-to-the-touch string with brighter tone and clarity than the 7710N Black Nylon Tape Wound set. This one-of-a-kind formulation and construction results in a string design ideal for jazz pizzicato, particularly solos.

SOLO EXTRA LIGHT TENSION DOUBLE BASS SET

This extra light tension set is perhaps the most flexible double bass string on the market. Handcrafted by La Bella artisans, their construction consists of a nickel wrap over a woven wire core. Classical musicians prefer this set for the solo bass repertory tuned one-step higher. Jazz players use the 7720S strings at normal pitch for performing both arco and pizzicato styles. With a longer-life than most bass strings, their amplified tone makes them the number one choice by most professional players including Stanley Clarke, Harvie S., Brian Bromberg and Ruben Rodriguez.
