    Finally, Andreas Eastman (305 model) Came with Helicores,I guess, (Blue Yellow).I mostly play pizz. Should i keep them for a while ,or get someting else?

    Congratulations on the new bass. Pictures would be nice. Also, I'm pretty sure the blue with yellow stripes are Helicore orchestra strings. Probably pretty thuddy for pizz.

    My personal recommendation is to stay away from Helicore hybrid strings whenever you do change strings. They came as the "upgrade" strings when I got my bass last year and sounded very metallic.

    Happy Doghousing . . .

    Great, thanks for the pics. Can you tell us where you got it from, and what kind of a deal (setup, pickup, gigbag etc...)you had ...
