    I hate new strings. They're so ..... new.

    I like 'em once they get all that zing worn off.

    Top end is for guitarists....and cymbals. And flutes.

    Me play bass. Ugh.
     
  6. lol, I only used warwick strings because it's what I had spare. They are a little bright right now, but they'll soon wear in and sound real nice.

  8. Nah! I love that twangy new string sound! everything just seems to ring out like a dream, especialy harmonics and slap, I love it! i think it's great just whaking up the low bass and high top on the eq and spending the afternoon jumping around my bedroom in a slapping frenzy! (my new string ritual) :p

    Hey Nick & Charling, either one of you guys ever try
    Picato strings? They're made in UK and are good strings.
    They're not really available here in the US, as they don't have
    a distributor. I was able to get some promo sets shipped over
    from England, they're actually quite good, maybe worth
    trying out some time.

    Cheers,

    Slug

    Yeah, I like strings better once the zing wears off as well. I do like the slap sound with new strings however. For some things they're good I guess.
