Ryan Martinie's strings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by bass element, Jul 9, 2004.


  1. Hey guys, I'm a huge Mudvayne fan (especially a fan of the bassist Ryan Martinie), and I was wondering if anybody knew wut kind of DR taperwound strings he uses as far as guage goes. im guessing they come in different guages, that is. And if anyone could describe or give more info about the taperwound DR strings i would appreciate it.

    I heard he uses lights in the studio, where his playing has to be cleaner, and heavys on tour, to minimize string flop in their tuning. As far as exact gauges, I have no idea. Keep in mind he is sponsored by DR, so he probably could get custom sets with gauges not available to non-sponsored players.
