: : Has any one used ELIXER bass strings, what did you think?

: Hi Chris...Down the page we had a little discussion about strings

: a while back, there was some mention made of Elixer strings, with

: some votes for, and some against..This is one brand I've actually

: never tried; somebody mentioned that they do carry a big price tag,

: though. After playing for almost 25 years, I've settled on the

: D'addario Prisms. They're the brightest, longest lasting strings

: I've ever used. They're stainless, and will eat softer fretwire,

: and fretless fingerboards. They're not easy on fingers, either,

: they will cause blisters and calluses, ( if you don't have calluses

: built up). They're just tough stainless strings, almost pure iron

: in content...BTW, I played Rotosounds for many, many years

: on My Rick 4001, it took almost 20 years to eat the frets down

: to the nub...Oh well, everything's a trade off!!!

: Cheers,

: Pat

Thanks Pat, I'll give 'em a try
