I don't know if this has been asked before. Will bow rosin damage my strings? Will it gunk them up? I normally wipe my strings down with an alcohol pad after playing...would that be good enough if I were to bow them with a rosined bow? Also, I'd like to know if upright metal bass strings are roundwound and similar in texture to electric bass strings (i.e., you can see and feel the windings, etc.) It's been a long time since I've been near an acoustic bass. Thanks.
