I know this question has probably been asked a million times ( I have probably have asked it myself in the past), but that doesn't stop me from asking it again I Live in the DC Baltimore area where humidity is insane and definitely affects my ability to keep my bass in tune. I would like to know if anybody out there has found a good alternative to gut. I have the feeling that i will always use a gut G-string, but the E, A and D strings...I'm wide open for suggestions.... just as an FYI, I'm playing mostly straight ahead and gypsy jazz. Thanks!!
