Are my strings supposed to be magnitized??

  1. I was trying to work on my bass's set up b/c of some tone problems I have been experiencing. I was curious if the poles in my p'up were properly aligned under the strings (they were covered) so I took a paperclip to touch to the p'up cover to locate the manets and discovered that it stuck to my strings too! Is this normal or do I have my p'ups too high?

    i was adjusting the pickups on my bass and the screwdriver stuck to the strings so it aint just your bass
     
  3. Yeah, this should be normal. The strings should magnetize over time.
