Need Strings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Big Ce, Apr 25, 2005.


  1. Players

    I need some help, I just purchased a TuneBass 5 string, great sounding bass! But, In know that very soon I will need to get a new set of strings for her.

    I am looking for something that will give me both a bright yet punchy sound. A set that has a good Low B aswell nothing sloopy and flabby. Any suggestions? I'm just getting back into the bass game and needing some real world help. Thanks again!

    Peace

    Cheap ($24/set online), punchy, bright, and last a long time.

    The B definitely isn't floppy. I just put a new set on about 15 minutes ago.

    What kind of bass do you play? I have a Tune (TWB53) 5 String Bass. It still has the factory strigs on her. They are due for a change. Thanks for the info!!! :)
