    My teacher reccommended D'Addario Prism strings, but since there are so many different types, I was wondering which kinds of strings you guys like. Are Prisms good? Also, what is the difference between long scale and short scale bass strings? Thanks!

    The D'Addario Prism Solid Stainless Steels are very nice strings. I've had them on my Moses. They might cost you a bit but its worth it ^_^. Whats the difference between Long Scale.. Shortscale? Long Scale is basically anything over 34" Scale. (Like a typical Fender ~ Carl Thompson). And Short scales are for like the Bronco bass (32", 30" scales) thats all ^_^; Hope I help you out a bit :)
     
  3. Prisms are one of the brightest strings on the market, that may or may not be what you are after.
