    I finally traded my Epi LP electric to a Steinberger bass guitar.Didnt pay anything . just 20 dollars for the nice soft case...full of pockets...
    Yomusic always sends me automatic REPLIES which pisses me off.
    I wrote to all the adresses.
    Do they ship their string adapter to TURKEY ??
    can anyone help me ? Steinberger bass guitars
    need double ball strings that i cannot find in Turkey.
    it is 5 stringed bass guitar.
    My dad will go to Berlin-Germany next week.
    Do you know a shop in Berlin where i can find
    String adapter for my new Steinberger ????

    I highly recommend you go through the extra effort of using double-ball strings on that beast. The string adapters are OK for an emergency, but are not very secure.

    I'm sure if you contact Status Graphite in the UK (http://www.status-graphite.com/) you can get their very fine (and inexpensive) double ball strings shipped to you in Turkey. Give them a try!

    Congratulations, by the way! Nice bass!

    Thanks =)
    the bass is VERY comfortable
    nice tone. i gave my epi LP electric with hard case
    and got this bass.. Is it a good deal ?
    But only one or two tones.
    The volume output seems low.
    what should i do ?
    the pick ups are quite high.
    Why should i use double ball strings strictly ?
    Is the string adapter risky ? why ?

    Why not secure ?
     
  5. The 'not very secure' statement probably refers to the adaptor's ability to grip the 'cut end' of the string, with clamping force, without letting go. If the adaptor doesn't maintain a solid grip, the string can go out of tune or come completely off.

    Whereas, the ball-end mounting doesn't rely on clamping force - rather, the ball fits securely in the notch.

    Don't quote me on this, let HeavyDuty verify my assumption. Hope this might help to answer your question anyway.

    Huh?
     
  9. Re: your signature... thought this may indicate that you have a woman in your life who is 'always right' and you are 'always wrong'.

    Meaning this concept of being wrong is familiar.

    Love my wife, even though I'm 'always wrong'
