    The new flats are stickyish. Makes me wonder if I should lube the strings.

    Any ideas?

    But but. Wont fingers/nose grease/hair grease/chicken grease/reindeer grease contain salts etc that will kill my string tone (thats already damped due to flatwound)?

    Found some food-safe silicon spray so I'll try that

    Works on rubber too! :bag:
     
  13. Wash your hands before you play. :cool: Yeah I'm cool, I know it. :cool:
