: Second, Where can I buy mooradian delux padded cover 4/4 or 7/8 size for cheap price?
: I'd appreciate if you reply me about this,thanks
Gut strings are good for jazz if you are after the kind of sound that Ray Brown ( and after all he is THE MAN ) had on his early recordings, but having said that , even R.B doesn't use gut strings nowadays ! It also depends very much on your bass - some basses respond better to one type of string than another,you have to try different strings to get "your sound". I know it's expensive but it's the only really sure way.
As for the Mooradian cover the best place I know of for both price and service is Lemur Music ( they have a catalogue ) or you can get them on www.lemurmusic.com
All the best,
