Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by bass_tool, Jun 15, 2001.


  1. When i bought my new 5-String bass recently, it came with a bit of rust on the B and G srings

    what is the best method to clean rust off, if any

    should i just buy new strings?

    Well you can use a grinder and some wd40? No man get new strings!
     
  5. if they started rusting right after you got them you can try to return them... I think bass strings are too expensive to have that happen to them after a recent buy.
