strings

Recommended Posts

So I managed to break my G last night. Fortunately I still had 3/4 of the set that I bought in '94 when my A shuffled off to bass heaven stuffed in the bottom of my spares bag. Unfortunately it took ages (2 songs) to EQ out all the high frequencies :)

Today I took it off and soaked it in engine oil. After a refitting and wipe down it sounds just as good as the old one did. :rolleyes:

*must remember to get a spare G and A and pre-soak them all before it happens again*

I love it! all those people boiling their strings to briong back the zing and you soak them in engine oil to remove it!
It's always a worry replacing one string, I had to replace one black nylon string recently, the new one sounded just like the old, no problem. I'll remember the engine oil when a round wound dies!
