New B string

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by xolin, May 3, 2003.


  1. Hey, this may be a novice question, but I'm putting in a new B string. But when i tune to B it doesnt sound, and i can see the thing move back and forth. When i try to tune it up (yes, i do stretch it alot), im afraid it sounds higher than the E and may snap. What do u suggest?

    Some brands (such as DR) recommend NOT stretching the string. Also, some people have had better luck with taper/exposed core strings for the low B. That may give you better definition.
