    Sorry to be redundant with cross-posting, but I need to get a good list of candidates for this project asap (and I know a lot of you never read the announcements :) ) Here's the info:
    ------
    A major music manufacturer is looking for some bassists to help test out some new strings. The test will be blind (you will not know the manufacturer or product). Participants will likely receive some free stuff or perks (plus the strings of course)... If you're interested, please review the following criteria:

    You must be an active bass player with at least 3 years experience
    You must own a 4- or 5-string bass
    You must be a stainless steel bass string user or have used them at some
    point in your bass playing experience
    You must be 18-years of age
    You must live in the US or Canada

    If you meet this criteria and are interested in participating, please email
    the following answers to admin@talkbass.com

    Name:
    Address:
    City, State, Zip:
    Email:
    Age:

    Er, I mean, I HOPE i MIGHT be in. I'm no JT, or Brad, but I can tell the slight tone diffs in strings. My ear has never failed me.

    EDIT: I'm also known for being pretty brash. If it stinks, it stinks. If it's good, it's good.
