I bought a set of strings yesterday, Rotosound customs in a black case, there super light (.30 - .85). I've never used very light strings so I thought I'd try them as I don't have another gig for a month or so. I put them on my bass, and noticed that they were really floppy, only then did I notice the tiny 'longscale' print. so after cursing for a bit about £20 wasted I decided to just tune them up untill they were tight enough to use, and it's actually really good! my bass feels almost guitar like, chords are ringing out and sound beautiful, especially harmonic chords using 'inbetween' harmonics. Im almost gutted I have to take them off! The slap sound reminds me very much of a bill dickens track I have entitled bass solo, does anybody know if he done a similar thing with his basses?
