  5. well, strings come in pack of four (usually) so you should probably replace all of them, but you dont have to if you dont want to, anyways, gauge doesnt really matter, but since your new to bass (im assuming) you should probably get fairly light strings (40, 60, 80, 100) as for brand, its all a matter of choice, or (as in my case) whats cheaper

    You can go to any music store and buy individual strings. Just tell the guy the gauge you want, and he'll get it for you. I'd go with Ernie Balls. And yes, get lighter strings. A full 4-pack of strings will cost you about $20.
     
  7. Ernie Balls are good, but they go dead too fast. Get Lo Riders.

    Go for Ernie Ball Super Slinky, usually its the gauge for Fender's, but ask a pro (I mean in the store or something)
