Warwick red labels = they never die???
Here's the story, I recently acquired a warwick bass 4months ago and have been playing it extensively. The ex owner claimed that they were warwick red labels and they have been on the bass for awhile.
It sounded pretty bright so I thought id change it to DRs or super slinkys as soon as it died.
The funny thing is, its been 4 months since and the feel and tone of the string is still almost like it came out of the package.
I personally played fat beams for a long time, but changed over to super slinkys recently because they have a better midrange...but they die really fast. Still superb for fingerstyle but not suitable for slapping and they get really rough on the fingers.
From what Ive read on the internet, no one seems to like warwick strings. But my experience seem to be totally opposite.
I was thinking maybe the owner made a mistake, so I opened up another set of red label he gave me to compare with the strings on the bass. They are indeed the same strings, with similar winding, gauge and bearings.
I have recently been applying GHS fastfret on my bass before I play em, not sure if it helps...?
I personally like Warwick strings; I prefer black label but the red labels are good too. Most people don't like them, but I really like them. I use some DR Strings too (usually high beams by preference) but if I have a choice, I would take the Warwick strings.
Glad you like them too; I say stick with them if that is what you like. They really sounded great on every Warwick I have owned.
Congrats too on getting a Warwick!!!
I had a set of red labels in my old Bantam for years and they sounded great for a long while. I did notice the winding had started to unravel after a year or so after the nut but the sound was sweet. The best budget strings ever.
