    hi folks,
    i was reading throughout the strings page but couldn't reach a conclusion for my current problem.
    I just bought a nice old Pillement Père and now i want to use my first bass, a big-souding laminated Musima, as a thumping spare with a gut setting.. knowing i've no idea how gut sounds or plays, i 've barely even tried it..
    I will use very little arco and want some kind of old Night Train-orientated setup, i was thinking of gut D and G and steel E and A.
    Is there any typical setup someone can advise me ? What brands should i choose ?
    Thanks all and cheers....
    Antoine

    hi, budget is not really an issue, if i have to pay 300 $ to get something good that's allright. On the other hand i f i can get something good for less.... ;)
