I hear you Grissle.. I have acidic hands ( less since I quit smoking!!
). That said, It's great to pick up bass a couple of months into a set and still have 'lively' play. That's my take. My boiling strings days are done. + I am not a broke-ass touring musician anymore and can afford certain ' creature comforts' at this stage in life (i.e. more expensive strings)! ha,ha
