  1. I finally got my bass. Its a shiney red Squier P-Bass. And I need strings. Are there any particular strings that are better than others?
  2. Welcome Nomad,
    I like DR Sunbeams and Low Riders.

    But most of us agree that GHS and Trace Elliot strings are bad choices. It takes lots of years and string sets and cash to find the perfect set for you.

    And, since you're a US resident, the best deal is to buy your strings online.
  5. I use these strings on everything I own.

    45-65-85-105 Nickel, $15 or thereabouts online.

  6. I think GHS Bass boomers are decent strings for the money.. I prefer them to the D'Addario XL's I've tried (the XL's lasted a wee bit longer, but I just don't like their sound as much), but I don't like them as much as the Prism's I have on now.
  7. I have a question about gauge. I tune EADG and play punk, so what guage string should I get?
  8. Like I said.....:D
