    I'm liking some Round Core Boomers on a recent bass and ran across Stringjoy. They sound like a good string but there's not much on them. (At $30 I would like a little more info if possible.) I've searched and there are a few brief comments from a while back and was wondering if any others had them and could describe them a little? Possibly indicating what other strings they sound similar to might help as well.
    Thanks!
     
  2. They hit me on Facebook with a lot of adds last year. They are out of Nashville I believe. I liked the idea of found cores. While I am happy with what I am using but may give them a try. The owner worked for another brand before he struck out on his own. I am sure there are some reviews on The net somewhere.

    Thanks. Yes, out of Nashville. Being such a small company, I couldn't find much on the bass strings. Mostly incidental comments, but will keep looking around.
     
  4. Stringjoy...the final frontier... Sounds like a perfect opportunity for you to boldly go where not many have gone before, Capt'n. ;)

    Ride boldly, ride!

    Indeed. They do sound interesting and my obsession makes me wonder and want to know what they sound like. I've got to get off the interwebs...:D

    I tried them. Took them off after 10 minutes.

    I’m not sure it was because they are bad strings. It’s probably more that in my old age, I just like what I like and I can’t see taking days to get used to another string. They felt and sounded quite different. Which is the point, right? Except that I didn’t find them to be an improvement.

    In spite of this, I believe the Stringjoys are worth a try.

    Thanks for the reply. I bought a set, figuring that was the only way to satisfy my curiosity. Should be here Saturday. We'll see. Won't be the first string I bought and used a couple times and put in the drawer. I've got a brand new set of GHS progressives I ought to list for sale now.
