Tuff Strings???

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by LoOtinant Dan, Jun 2, 2003.

  1. I break at least two strings every other gig. Meaning I get about four live shows and a practice or two's use out of them. So that means I have to buy and change strings every other week nearly. Yes, I am aware that I play my bass really hard, but thats the way I do it naturally. Anybody have some good suggestions on what strings are pretty tough? I have tried Dean's, GHS, Rotosounds, Peavy's, and Ernie's. I use Roundwound. :confused:

    If you are breaking strings that much, it might be your bass. Check the saddles for any roughness or sharp edges. Find a qualified luthier to file them down if you don't feel that you can do it yourself.
  3. Yeah they do seem to always break at the bridge. Good idea. Thanks
  4. Try MEGA HEAVY strings, they should last longer, I think Boomers are made in the heaviest set
