    I have a bit of an esoteric question - does anyone know or remember what strings gordo used before the switch to slick rounds? I really dig the 93-95 vibe (though I think his setup was relatively stable for that whole ten year period).

    I have scoured the internet and can't find this information anywhere. Maybe no one cared about bass strings back then! Thanks!

    They sound like D'Addario XLs to me but someone else might know for sure.

    Ha, that was my guess too!
    Thanks for answers so far y'all. Would love to hear more!

    On another topic, here's Gordo playing a 60 minute "foam" with The Duo, which seems critically missing from the gordo fan club thread:

    DR lo-riders. I asked him in '92. Stainless steel. I had never heard of DR strings before that.

    That was some good 97! Slave from Friday was amazing, but a whole other animal.
