We get questions about which string to use everyday.
More often than not, the poster doesn't provide enough information, and/or their profile is empty, so we know very little about them and their gear, tastes, etc.
Another member came with this checklist, which I edited a bit:
1. What are you using the bass for (arco, pizz, 50/50, 10%pizz/90%arco ?...)
2. What kind of sound are you looking for (bright, dark, long sustain, thumpy, gut-like, etc.).
3. What kind of feel are you looking for (high/low tension, thick/thin gauge, etc.)
4. What strings have you used in the past and what did you like/dislike about them (If you don't know what was on your old bass, try to find out what strings they were by providing the silk colors at both ends).
Help us to help you!
