String shootout

Recommended Posts

I've heard, and read the comments on BassPlayer magazine's "wind tasting?", string shootout. And I agree with some comments but, I agree that the brand of strings makes a big diffrence in tone/feel/$, and playability.

 

Who really are the 4 or so bass guitar string manufacturers????

 

This seems to be a very hush-hush/top secret topic. I know these manufacturers make strings to a buyer's specs. And, have experienced these differences through the years. And have my own preferences on nickel/ss/round/flats etc...I think it's great to have so many different types of strings to choose from, and it is overwhelming at times.

HA!

You're one of them aren't you???

You gave yourself away with such a vague answer...

It's a conspiracy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Rumor has it that one of those 4 string manufactures isn't to far from my area...

Wish I knew for sure.

In many cases, the only difference in specs is the color of the ball or silk at either end of the string, or the box it is packaged in. The "manufactured to our specifications" racket is not very convincing to me anymore. Call me a cynical consumer.

Ya'll (Texas thang) make me laugh and smile after a crappy day. I was just curious, and thought someone would know better than I. JC is in on the scam! Who woulda thunk?
