I've been using "Fast Fret" on my guitar and mandolin strings for the past year. It keeps the strings from tarnishing and they sound bright for months. I've also gotten used to the slick, lubricated feel of the strings. One of my basses has very coarse strings, and it's a real hard bass to fit strings. I've tried the Fast Fret, but it's nowhere near the difference you get with the thinner strings on a guitar. So does anyone use a dressing for bass strings, and if so what do you use? Is there a quick way to break in new bass strings?
