    Hey I never changed the strings on my fender precision bass but the ones that came with it are really crapping out. i was wondering what kind of strings would be best for a punk sound? Like nofx, rancid, dillinger 4,etc.

    Lots of punk bands like the Ernie Ball Super Slinky Bass strings.. try those :)
     
  3. yeah, ernie ball is good, if not try some ghs boomers (they kinda give it a rock sound but it works)

     
  4. yeah i use ghs boomers and ernie ball hyrbrid slinkys. the only problem with ghs boomer is they go dead pretty quick. but i still like em cause even when they do feel mudded out they still sound good.
     
  5. I second the ernie ball super slinkys. they work for me, last a good amount of time, and arent over priced. Ghs boomers are great but, they dont last long at all, mine went dead in a day.
