: : i am getting into a bit of slap bass , i have steel strings, ive been told that most guys use gut strings , the steel seems to be doing a lot of damage to my finger board ...and fingers!!
: Yes, steel strings do that.
: my suggestion is find somebody who has gut and try them.
: they're a whole different animal.
: I just put set of guts on.
: love em, big sound nice feel to them.

: you can also look into some of the synthetic strings, they can do a decent job with less investment The main thing is ask around and do your research
: Az
i am also getting into slap i find the euro gut strings are good but tend to break when least predicted.then i tried the cheaper nylon strings but i must say i was dissapointed with the tone.
