    Hey Brock......this H2, aka lowphat from the pit.
    I bought some strings from you! Do you know about soaking strings in alchohol? Usualy when I find a set of strings I really like (the buttery kind) I'll soak them in a 36 inch piece of 1.25" pvc pipe, that's caped off on one end and has a screwed on fitting on the other. (thanks Home Depot) I fill it with rubbing alchohol, shake it and let it sit over night. Works great on DR's and Dean Markley Blue's. Looking foward to doing this with the Pressure Wounds I got from you........but they still sound great!
