Tape Wound

Tape Wound bass guitar strings are manufactured with nylon tape wrapped around the outer wire wrap. The tone produced by tape wound strings is mellow and warm. Tape wound strings are often used on fretless basses since they cause less wear and tear to the fingerboard than a traditional round wound string. Tape wound strings tend to last longer than round wound or flat wound strings as the tape covering protects the metal from corrosion and dirt caused by direct contact with the fingers.
