Black Nylon Tape Wound

"Black Nylon Tape Wound sets are the 'secret behind the sound" of many professional guitarists. To create that warm, jazzy sound, these sets have a special design. The 3rd through 6th strings are a stainless steel round wound string covered with a black nylon tape outer wrap. Plain steel is used for the 1st and 2nd strings."


Hey Bobby. At one time a long time ago LaBella was about the cheapest strings on the market. But now I use them on my fractional sized guitars. I have three and am building another. They seem to be holding up good. The size your talking about I haven't a clue though.
