    Just what the thread title says. If Lando Calrissian played bass, what kind of strings do you think he might use?

    Nickels.

    Which he would use until someone yanked his bass out of his hands and told him to play stainless.

    Which he would use until the next person yanked his bass out of his hands and told him to play flats.

    Which he would use until the next person yanked his bass out of his hands and told him to play tape wounds.

    Which he would use until the next person yanked his bass out of his hands and told him to play pressure wounds.

    He's secretly a guitarist.

    No Carrots? Whatever strings he used, one of 'em would have to be .45 gauge

    Dean Markley Blue Steels...they're cryogenically treated just like how he did Han.

    Whatever this is strung with, I think we can rule out tapes.

    Pyramid Golds since he was "Gold Leader" in Return of the Jedi. I like the .45 reference though! Off to youtube some old commercials of his for giggles.

    He would be playing some grimy funk, period. Similar to Larry Graham in the early days, he'd use tapes. So I figure he'd endorse Roto tapes, and the ol' .45:

    Lando would use whatever you gave him and kick your ass with it.

    He would use strings made of photons, wouldn't he?

    This is a trick question. Lando wasn't the bass player.
