    I just got a new set of DR High Beams for my 4 string Stingray, yesterday.

    I was putting on the E, then A, then D, then G. Everything went on smoothly and 2 minutes later the D uncoils........then today the G decided to do the same. These strings are a lighter guage then the ones that came with the bass. It seems like my old D is the size of my new A. I think this bass needs to be setup for these strings but I can't tell. Does anyone know where I can get decent setup very fast in Northern VA?
     
  2. what do you mean uncoiled?
    like the wrap came off? if so, you need new strings if the metal wrappings came undone :(
