'Buying No Strings' Fun

Recommended Posts

A confession.

I've played bass for nearly 40 years and have never EVER bought a single string.

To put this another way, my 74 Jazz has 74 strings. Sounds lovely too.

Sorry.

That's not a bass. It's a piano.

And that's actually very witty. Nice one. :-) :-)

You can take zing out of bright sounding new strings with EQ, but you can't add harmonic richness into dead old strings. I put it to you that you don't know what you're missing.

Not keen on new strings myself, though now I`ve bought an active bass, things may change - for that one only. Certainly though, on my Precisions, I dislike new strings intensely.
