Change in strings-table sinking

Discussion in 'Strings [DB]' started by .matthew e wengerd., Oct 10, 2004.


  1. I changed my obligatos (synthetic core) to original flexocores (metal core). I believe the added tension caused some sinking in the middle (readL bridge area) of my table. Will this neutralize once the bass acclimates to the tension?

    Any considerations I should be aware of? The table is slab cut, hence more succeptable to table flexion as I understand it. Is there hope?

    If you are noticing sinkage- get thyself to a luthier. I have seen some of Solano's basses in the past with shrinkage issues. Don't take any chances...

    FWIW
