    so i work in the north and got stuck in a blizzard for 8 hours yesterday. total whiteout.
    8 hours sitting in a truck. blah!
    it did give me a chance to listen to most of the neurosis and kyuss dicos though.

    It's true so are purple basses
  18. So I saw a GK RB400 at GC for$179.00.

    Should I do it?
  19. Since you guys are a bunch of sissies, I'm going to do some string testing on my P-Bass. Since I've had it, it's seen two sets of strings. LaBella 760FL and GHS Pressurewounds.

    The LaBellas are beautiful strings, but I needed strings that are a little brighter since I'm using this bass for System ****. The Pressurewounds hit the right spot for me. They sound good for everything I play, not just the band. Hell, they even work for when I play some old Motown/reggae.

    I've got a handful of strings here (some new, some used), so I figure why not try 'em all out. If I don't like 'em, I can probably trade them to someone for something else.

    So here's what I'm dealing with:
    R. Cocco Nickels (used on a different bass and they sounded ****ing awesome)
    D'Addario Chromes (new)
    DR Sunbeams (new)
    GHS Boomers (new)

    Gonna give the R. Cocco's a whirl on the P-bass now (if they fit) and see how it goes. I'll report back.


    Sorry to hear that, man. The last few years has gotten worse. When I was working overnight shifts in Emergency, most of the crazy **** came from there. Shotgun blasts and everything.
  20. GHS boomers, is what I use.
