Soft case + Strings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by needmoney, Apr 5, 2005.


  1. Just wondering.. would keeping a bass in a soft padded case prolong the life of the strings? Is it wise to keep it in the case? Since I don't own a hard case this is the best I can do.

    Thanks.

    Either kept in a case or on a stand is great, for the safety of you gear in general.

    It will keep dust from settling on the strings (and the rest of the bass), and cigarette smoke and sunlight off of them. But quite honestly, the strings should be changed before any environmental factors have their way with them (as in decades :)).
