I just got back from samash in times square, and i was trying out some of the basses. I noticed that the strings they use are a lot bouncier and better than the strings i use (ernie ball super slinky). does anybody know what kind of stings they use to string their basses/guiars? or does anyone know what the other stores use, like guitar center or best buy? any suggestions for strings?
Stores don't generally change the strings on the instruments, so they would have been whatever was stock on the guitars you were playing.
I don't know about Sam Ash, but Guitar Center usually strings their higher-end basses and guitars with D'Addario strings. You can tell by the multi-colored ball ends on the strings.
