I have been thinking about this for about a month and wanted to ask everyone here. 1: If I put together a monster collection of strings and made them available for tryout so people could find "their sound" using a selection of strings, would people be willing to pay a fee to do so? $x per string/$x per set, etc. 2: If yes to question 1, how much would you expect to pay for a string trial? When you put a number down, realize that strings wear and tear being on an off basses and the collection will have to be refreshed from time to time. 3: If yes to question 1, would you be willing to pay up front the full cost of the strings you are renting and once I receive them back, receive a refund of it less the rental fee? 4: How long of a trial period would you want? I do realize of that if someone wanted the entire collection of strings, it would be quite a lot of money. Singles or sets would be available. When you receive the strings, there will be a return mailer included for sending the strings back, so all you would have to do is drop them in the mail box or post office. Larger collections would be covered with shipping insurance. This all came up because I have dumped about a grand in strings recently. If this service was available, I could have saved a lot of money and found my sound preference with separate string/manufactures or even full sets. Curious to your thoughts/concerns and feedback.
