In Reply to: 'Blue steel' strings??? posted by Chris on September 14, 2001 at 20:51:47:
: hey all, just bought a pricy pair of blue steel strings, i had heard that they offer the brightest tone, and that they dont go dead for a lonnnng time. At first, they were incredible sounding, especially on a passive p bass... alot of punch without the extra electronics in an active rig. Well suprise, a week after i blew 35$ them they sounded like rubber bands, and the top string broke. I do play alot of slap/pluck, but ive never had a string break before anyways. I wanted to know, has anyone had this same misfortune with this brand? and also, in need of a new set, what brands would offer the briiiiight bright tone of the the blue steel with long life and great sustain? Thanks to all who can help me with this. OH and by the way, i boiled them just to see if i could loven them up again and it was great, but too bad it wont stay that way. Anyhoo, peace and love. Chris
