Which strings to help get a punk sound?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by marineman227, Aug 30, 2004.

  1. I would like to get a sound out of my bass kind of like yellowcard or story of the year bassists. basicly a lighter tight punk style of playing. I was looking at the GHS Bass Boomers either the light or medium but i'm not really sure
  2. try some light roundrounds, or even brite flats.

    If you truly wanted to be punk, you wouldn't care.

    yeah dude, its not really the strings, its the amp/cab/bass. the strings will change a bit, but yeah if you are really punk rock, it shouldt matter.
