    Default Good Value on Bass Strings

    Hey, all...if any of you bass players don't mind playing some fat strings then I gotta recommend the $7.00 set from Musician's Friend. They are pretty heavy - .045 to .105 - but they have my vote. The set I have on now has lasted me almost 6 months, which is pretty flippin' good for a gigging bassist. Granted, they don't sound as supremely fresh as they did then - like piano strings when you do slappin' & poppin' - but they still sound great.

    That's a pretty good price on bass strings. What brand are they, the generic MF ones? I don't even have a bass, why am I asking? Hahaha.

    LMAO. It's like some family members of mine, it doesn't matter if you use the product, but if you can get it for a great price, get it anyway, you never know when your gonna need them.
