So after a long bout with the customer service with a certain music company, I have a replacement acoustic bass with non-rusty strings. That is really beside the point though: the real point I'm getting at is I have no idea what strings are on it. The first bass I had had some bronze strings on it, but this replacement has what appear to be stainless. I'm guessing they put new ones on it because I complained about the strings on the original bass. I was wondering if anyone wanted to take a crack at what kind of strings they are. The strings have no silk (that I can see), appear to be stainless and came on my Dean Playmate EAB Acoustic Electric bass. I know this isn't a lot of info to go with and I apologize for that. Anyone have any ideas, or questions?
