The new Godin has me thinkin' and I'm a long way's removed from knowing anything about tape wounds these days ... It's wearing Jazz Flats and I like JF's for their woody quality. A step woodier yet might be the ticket on this bass.

I use Roto TruBass, and when those aren't available GHS black nylon tapewounds work. I do not like the Fender tapewounds.

I use La Bella tapes on my fretless. Really like them.

I have never used the labellas or JF's
Fender 9120's have been my fav though.....
One thing to check though....
if you are not touching your bass when plugged in and turned up and it gets some ground buzz until you touch it.....and you might not want these. You never actually ground with them, and that noise will not go away if you get it.
Or....you will have to wind your treble way down......

Ive used black nylon tape wounds in the past. They should take you to the next level. I bought mine from Carvin.

Another vote for GHS black nylon here. I use them on my fretless Godin Acoustibass and they sound great -- very much like an upright. Hope it helps, CS

LaBella tapes for me.
I have 'em on my '51RI and had 'em on my '75 P (flats on the '75 P now).
I bought mine from Carvin
Don't quote me, but Carvin has the best deal around on LaBella tapes IMHO, and they are long enough to string through the body.
My buddy the drummer owns a store and can't even get the strings at HIS cost for what I paid through Carvin.
