    i recently joined a really kick ass band that also happens to be a metal band, and their brand of metal requires a drop A. did some recording today and wouldn't you know, my .125 lorider A sounded like something was distorting bad somewhere in the chain, but absolutely nothing was. it was just the string farting out.

    so the guitar player actually owns my old thumb bass, which i really wouldn't want to ever strap on again for gigs but wouldn't mind it for recording. but i'm gonna string it up with whatever string would sound best so low. it's gotta be CLEAR.
