Blast cult lowlifes opinions pls

Recommended Posts

I've decided the Lowlifes arn't for me... I'm not used to the low tension and I do a little too much bow work for them to be my main string. Was fun to try them out though, very punchy and worked well on the covers gig I used them for where I usually struggle a bit in the mix! Will be popping them on the classifieds but drop me a message if you'd like to try some.

So I bought knicknack’s strings and have just put them on today. Quite like them - was a bit worried they’d be like my old Jargar Dolces when i saw them in all their cheesewire glory but they’re nice and flexy, especially the D and G which I thought would be unusable for me. Slap nicely, sound good, all good so far. No basis for comparison vs other mag-friendly strings but they’ll do the job for me!

Well, decided they’re not for me in the end (sounded great and worked great with the Schaller, but just cannot get on with the feel and gauge of steels) so they’ll be up on the for sale board soon with one more gig on the clock.

That's a shame, I am the opposite, I really like the feel of steel compared to something like the Innovation and Presto. And I always get small blisters with nylon strings that I don't from steel, not a huge inconvenience but slightly annoying all the same. I haven't played much these last couple of months due to a wrist injury so I haven't tried my new BC strings on my second bass yet, but still love them on my primary bass.

Just to perpetuate this massive thread and do justice to the LowLifes, I now actually really like them and have kept them on my bass after all. I'm finding some of my tricksy slappy stuff a bit difficult as I'm used to playing strings the width of a finger, but it'll come. Its quite exciting to have some sustain on notes after all these years. And now I have a brand new set of Prestos sat around for when I fancy a change...
