Nylon Tapewound Double Ball Bass Strings

LaBella Double Ball Nylon Tapewound Strings

One of the only nylon tapewound options in existence for Steinberger basses. Many steinbergers, especially the new Synapse models, have a bright sound that is enhanced by the EMG pickup. Nylon strings can really create a darker, warmer character. Kudos to LaBella for providing this option.
