: Hey guys. I was wonder what type of strings you use thet dont break when you play slap bass.my G-tring Keeps breaking at the core within two-five days of buying them brand new. I cant keep spending this kind of money. Am I putting them on wrong? sombody told me somthing about tension at the bridge one time but I didint understand. HELP. Thanx Guys (The Brewmeister)


Hey...lets look at a couple of different places on the bass. first, the bridge, does the string break right on top of the bridge saddle? if so, look foe a burr or sharp edge and file it a little. Then the nut, look for the sharp edge or sharp angle and adjust accordingly. If the string is breaking somewhere in between these two spots, then I dont know what is wrong. good luck.....john
