TRIALLING STRINGS

Recommended Posts

With such a wide selection of strings now available, flat wound, round wound, half round, nylon coated. Wouldn't it be helpful if maybe some of the bigger stores (cost implications for smaller outlets) had a few basses strung with different types of strings so comparisons could be made

Unfortunately IME it doesn’t work as strings need to be matched to the bass. Just because a set sounds and feels good on one bass doesn’t mean they will sound and feel good on another. I currently have 5 basses. Alll of them are strung with different strings because that’s what works best for each bass for me.

I discovered flats after many years of round wound. I only have one bass and by the time I had needed to change strings and tried different makes, some £50 per set, it took some time and cost. Trialling them at an earlier stage may have allowed me to discover my prefered type
