Not sure if this should be in recordings or strinsg or what, but here goes... I've got an afternoon/evening in the studio tomorrow to try and get down 4 bass tracks on my rock bands new demo. I havent played the songs for months, but that's another story! Anyway, we're going for a more stoner sound, the guys think I should use new strings, but I bought some, put them on yesterday and took them straight off again cause they were too clean sounding. What's your take on new or old strinsg to record? Is it the 'done thing' to use new strings for some techie studio reason, or is it known that many bassists use old strings to record?
