    how can I do to mantain my strings??
     
  2. Leave em in the box, they last forever that way.:D

    Don't play with dirty hands and wipe em down when you are done, especialy if you tend to sweat a lot on them, this goes for your Bass too.

    fast fret by ghs works great for cleaning and maintaining strings.

    where can I find that holy thing online?
     
  6. By "your Bass" mean your bass guitar, you know that heavy thing your strings are attatched to.
    The back of the neck and the body get all sorts of dirt on them just from playing. I just use a small clean cotten towel that I keep in my case. Once u get into the habit of cleaning it everytime you play it becomes a ritual and helps keep the Bass nice.

    By the way try not to freak out the first time U put a ding in the bass , it looks worse then it is.

    Don't worry about that, my bass name is "Dingy" I don't know why, the thing is that I was a little worried 'cuz I had to buy string too often, and someone told me a couple of tricks but I've forgotten, and now that I at last buyed the strings that I were looking for "Ken Smith" now I want to take care of them.
