    Bummer.

    I happen to like nickel strings though. The DR Low Riders and Sunbeams are my favs.

    Cool share, thanks.

    Kinda weak that he didn't mention that it was Rotosound that developed the round wound first and was the OEM to Danelectro.

    The story as I understand it is that D'Addario did in fact create the strings that were stock on those Danelectros. That said, My Generation was recorded with Labella flatwounds on a jazz bass.

    Many years ago, I had the chance to talk with Entwistle. He told me that he bought multiple Danelectro basses because the strings would break easily, and there was nowhere to buy replacement strings... so he had to buy replacement basses.

    ...and that jibes with Wikipedia's take on it, as well:
