What Strings??????

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by leroy hogg, Mar 30, 2005.


  1. I have two 5-string bass guitars - same make. One with Ebony and one with Maple fretboard.

    What strings do you suggest I use on the Ebony and what on the Maple and why? - Should it be stainless steel or nickel, flats, grounds or rounds and why?

    The strings I nornally use on the Maple are the DR high beams stainless steel and on the Ebony - Elite nickels.
