Anaheim, CA (Jan 18, 2012) – D’Addario is introducing new additions to two of its most popular lines, the Nylon Tapewound Bass String line and the XL Pure Nickel Electric Guitar String lines, adding a new medium scale to the Nylon Tapewound Bass line and an 8-string set to the XL Pure Nickel Electric Guitar String line.

The Nylon Tapewound Bass Strings are revered by traditional and modern players for their warm “thump” with focused fundamental. Gauge specs are engineered for fit on most basses. Designed to produce a deep, warm tone with smooth feel, D’Addario’s Tapewound Bass strings are wound using a flattened black nylon which is polished to an ultra-smooth finish. These engineered to provide optimal tension and are gauged to fit properly on standard bass saddles and nuts. Tapewounds may be used on fretted or fretless basses and are designed to deliver a vintage tone ranging from the “thump” of an upright bass to the focused depth of traditional flatwound strings.

The new medium scale set will be available in January 2012 and will retail for $62.00.

XLs are precision-wound with nickelplated steel on a hex-shaped core, resulting in strings with a distinctive bright tone and excellent intonation.
