Les Claypool Standup Handle Bass String??

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by incuboyj5, Apr 5, 2006.


  1. Alright, I am currently fabricating some 1/4" flatstock and 1 1/2" Square stock in hopes of creating this "handle bass" I guess. I've done quite well with what I've got, but have yet to find an affordable string. It needs to be around 48-54" long, and must be fairly durable to keep up with the tension from the handle.[​IMG]

    I've been told that Double Bass strings can accomodate my needs, and aircraft cable was also suggested, but Double Bass Strings are expensive, and aircraft cable is a bit too rough to play it with my fingers.
    Any Suggestions?
