it broke at the peg
didn't you keep your old set of strings?
its my first set of strings
Welcome to talkbass!
Not sure where you are but can you order a new set on-line and have them delivered?
Fretnation to the rescue!
Bass and Guitar Strings, Amps and More from Fret Nation
I was gonna mention, I’ll mail you a set of used strings. They are EB Power Slinkies. As I change strings every few weeks, I have plenty...
what do you mean no?
fellas i cant buy new strings it is literally illegal to step outside your home no exceptions in jordanwhich is where i live
Okay, why not?
I replied to the post where you said no to the question of can strings be bought online and delivered to one’s home. At least, that’s how the thread appeared. I replied, wrong, meaning one can indeed buy strings online and have them delivered to their home. I’ve been doing it for several years.
Did I miss something?
Okay, you can’t go to your mailbox or open the front door and pick up a package that’s been delivered to your door?
Okay, I guess you are screwed until you can get mail again. A string can be tied as long as the knot isn’t in the speaking length of the string. I know this from splicing broken piano bass strings back in place. Preferable to replacing the broken string with a news one that sounds very different from the existing old ones. I’ve never tried this with bass strings.
Good luck, I guess.
no worries, I cannot order online as my country has entered full quarantine and it is illegal to go out except for a certain time, only very small neighborhood minimarkets are open
I lived in Jordan for a bit & read that their lockdown has been the MOST strict. I assume mail services are on-hold for now.
Next time you change strings, get two packs. One to go on the bass & one as a spare.
You should fill in the info in your profile under "Personal Details > Location" so people can see where you're based and respond accordingly.
And keep some of the old ones when you change out strings....
(I save a few old ones for spares in case I break one, yeah, occasionally. And when I need new(er) strings for my fretless bass. I hate new strings on that bass. I use the full ones on it until they go thunk and won’t in tune. Usually lasts a year)
Your G string is the easiest to play around unless you need those highest five notes.
Consider it a challenge.
there's a certain lighter timbre to the G string and i cant play chords on the high register
there's no real way to fix it. you just have to wait it out.
I guess you're limited, but you can still play. Hopefully this will end sooner than later. Sounds like Jordan has the right idea to stop the spread.
