    Help! i want to change my strings for some d'addario xl 220 super soft strings, but the problem is that i don't know the guages on me bass, how do i find this out. I have a Tanglewood, P-Bass style bass. I don't know the gauges
    Help!
     
  2. You can take your bass to the music shop with you and they can measure your strings for you. That is, if you don't have a micrometer :)

    I was gonna' say Home Depot or similar mega-hardware store,
    but then I checked your profile.
    Is there a good hardware or auto-parts store nearby?
    A simple, good mechanical one shouldn't be too expensive.
