    Hello. New to Talkbass, like it much.

    I tried quite a few acoustic basses (MArtin, Fender, Taylor, etc), and IMO none came close to the Tacoma's sound and projection.

    But, I broke a string and am wondering if anyone knows what kind of strings it uses, or if anyone can recommend some good acoustic bass strings. Thanks!
  2. Hey I like the Simpsons reference....
    Anyway, the Tacoma Thunderchief comes with Elixir strings. They are good-sounding strings.
    Another brand that you might want to consider is Thomastik-Infeld. They make the strings that go on Rick Turner's electric/acoustic basses. They have a very different, kinda spongy feel, and they sound terrific.
    I think you can find either of these brands at http://www.juststrings.com
    Good luck
