    Hello, TB,

    I was an idiot and put a slightly used set of Lo-Riders in the same pile as a slightly used set of Super Brights. How do I tell them apart?

    Pics attached... Not that they'll help... :rollno:

    Thanks.

    38" will be one
    37.25" will be the other

    *replaces drum head*

    *drum roll resumes*
     
  10. 38" = DR
    37.25" = Dunlop

    Also, try making them into a coil. The DR would be stiffer and more resistant than the Dunlop.

    I hate to be the one to say this but... if you can't tell the difference by sound or feel... why do you care?

    Call me lazy, but I didn't want to string them up and decide. Plus, I think we all learned a little something here, thanks to @SLaPiNFuNK and @michael_t.

    And the drummer....Mustn't forget him....:)
     
  15. Everything I know about strings I learned from @SLaPiNFuNK. He is the guru around here. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the honorable mention, though. ;)

    For $20.95, I'd just buy a new set and not worry or question whether I have the desired set of strings on my bass.
    Never had much luck or satisfaction using strings that were previously strung, no matter what the length of time.
