    :help: Hi, I have a gig tomorrow night and today I was practicing and my A string broke. The thing is, I have another string I used to use on my bass, but it is more or less oxidized I would like to know if I could do something to in a way "fix" it, to make it sound decent. Thank you :help:

    Take the string that needs cleaned and soak it in alcohol. For more on that, read some of thse threads:


    Edit - Do not boil strings. Ever.
