Question about used strings! please HELP
Recently a friend has given me his bass guitar. It's a cheap one. but the strings are very nice D'Addarios and he used the strings for two months. is it OK to use the strings for my bass? I have a Warwick Corvette $$. May applying a set of used strings of another bass have any bad effects on my dear Corvette?

Is the bass you were given long scale? Are the strings an especially heavy gauge? Assuming they're standard strings and both basses are long scale, you shouldn't have any problems.

Thank you 3234718! the string are long scale D'Addario, with .045/.065/.080/.100/.130 for their gauge. my bass is a long scale one and the string are long enough, but I'm not sure if the other bass is even a standard one. It's a very low quality Chinese instrument.

If you don't mind your friends finger cheese, your bass will be fine. Strings are strings. If they have different tension you WILL need to adjust the truss rod; just run a setup on it.
... and maybe be aware of any creases that are in the strings, such as if the previous was a string thru body or at the witness points that will be between the saddles and nut on your bass, or if a strange bridge type was used ...
