    What kind of stings do you use for an acoustic bass?

    I use phosphor-bronze on my Takamine acoustic/electric bass. I think they're Dean Markley mediums, but I'm not sure. (I don't play that guitar very frequently, and can't remember the last time I changed its strings.)

    LaBella Deep Talkin' Bass nylon tapewounds. Carvin sells them at a very low price!
     
  4. I'm using T-I Jazz Flats right now, but I may try La Bella tapewounds next time. I personally don't like bronze roundwounds on ABG.

    Ordered myself a set of TI-acousticore's for my ABG. Hope they're worth the high price...
