what are the pros and cons of having gut strings on your DB? how is the tone of the bass affected, or is that more to do with the type of woods used in the construction. what difference in the sound quality would i get? Would i still be able to use my realist pickup? what about playability - physically how would they compare to (say) thomastik spirocores (which i have on at the moment). what could i benefit from changing to gut strings? Any/ all comments appreciated. Rikodriko. Uniting the low end since last night.
