    Alright so I need new strings for my Ibanez BTB406QM. Few things I need to know: what gauge are my strings? Are there ways to find out?

    I would like to purchase a set of 6 strings for my bass. What would you recommend and at what cost?

    As you know, I play a Ibanez BTB406QM, I pick, slap, and finger, play rock and grunge, and would like it to sound somewhat like Krist Novoselic (if you know who that is).

    Thanks!
