As the title says, i'm trying to decide on new strings for my bass. i have an Ibanez SR500 for about a year, and i'm not sure what strings would sound good. I'm mostly into Chili Peppers, Iron Maiden, and Metallica stuff. Also as a side note, on the E string, and the A string there seems to be plastic coming off the string so it looks like hair. Help on what this is. thanks!

your bass probably came with elixer nano web strings. i also bought a similar ibanez bass about a year ago and it came with elixers. the nano web thingies supposedly make the string last longer. the same thing is happening to my strings, the plastic-hair coming off and all. sorry, but i don't know which strings to recommend. i hoped this helped

I use D'addario nickel wounds, and they sound really great with my 505. AND they don't peel like crazy. That hairy stuff is the coating on the strings. Usually when that happens it's time to change your strings. So you're all good :P



this is the five string version, but you get the idea.

edit: I payed $35 canadian for them
