String advice

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Microbass, Jan 26, 2003.

  1. OK, it looks like I'm NEVER going to get my Slowounds.
    So I guess I'll experiment...

    I'm looking for a really low-brightness. With LOTS of 'crunch-munch'.

    Examples.. Mike Dirnt (longveiw)
    Stanley Clarke & Les Claypool - Fusion Bass Crunch Time
    Chris Squire... :)

    Whatcha think? I have a pretty crap set up, so getting a perfect tone could be hard, but that doesn't matter.

    my p-bass copy is a long scale, but I have my new bass coming in next week, and I'm sure it's a short scale. (Gibson Grabber). It is OK to cut the ends off of strings, right?

    thanks all

    Maybe Rotosound RS-66LDN (Nickel r/w's) would be easier
    to find in your area? Or even Pyramid "Pure Nickel" r/w's?

    Gibson Grabber is a short scale? :confused:
