Firstly is there any strings out there that dont sound like ****in ****e after playin on em for a few weeks? Ones that give a nice deep metal punch, long scale, for more than the first few times playin? Secondly wats the best way to clean strings? I normally boiled em and it worked like a charm but tried it with Rotosound 105s, now my E sounds flat as hell. Hence the annoyed mood im in now, almost threw bass at the wall! For my basses sake please help!!
