Just a quick question. Absolute, fire-sale prices for light-gauge upright strings, to be used on a Palatino VE500 and mostly for salsa, Latin-American folk styles, and some jazz. I'm talking about something along the lines of Webstrings.com for electric basses. Any thoughts...I'm a poor electric bass player who doesn't use his Palatino enough to justify $100.00 on strings, but uses it enough that he needs to have his Palatino ready for work. Currently, they have Daddario Hybrid Mediums on them and they're SO damned stiff to play.
