Supernils and Yogurt
So, I've had a set of Supernils on my Kay bass for a couple of years. Strictly used for pizzicato and (gentle) slap. They are like yogurt; sorta hard to tell when they've gone bad. So, how do you know when its time to replace them?
I played em for years on my old kay.
I changed em when the windings started to unravel.
The metal ones. Usually the A string.
A winding would poke me in the finger, time to get some new ones!
I usually got a couple years out of a set with some pretty hard use.
I suppose it's largely a personal preference, but I think SuperNils sound MUCH better when played in for a couple years. I keep old ones in my shop when folks have me change theirs, just for that reason.
